  ESC ESC ESC runs the command keyboard-escape-quit,
  which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `simple.el'.

  It is bound to M-ESC ESC.


  Exit the current "mode" (in a generalized sense of the word).
  This command can exit an interactive command such as `query-replace',
  can clear out a prefix argument or a region,
  can get out of the minibuffer or other recursive edit,
  cancel the use of the current buffer (for special-purpose buffers),
  or go back to just one window (by deleting all but the selected window).
