Re: no meta key in Windows

C-h k reports:

for alt-delete
M-d runs the command kill-word

for alt-backspace
M-DEL runs the command undo

but this is because I have

 '(delete-selection-mode t nil (delsel))
 '(pc-selection-mode t nil (pc-select)

under custom-set-variables.

If you just installed the binaries then you shouldn't have a .emacs
initfile yet, but run emacs -q just to see if that helps.

C-<backspace> will probably run backward-kill-word.
