Stefan, thank you, but you loose me. What is a "control window"? I'm running ediff in emacs. With the Mx-ediff command Emacs displays two vertical windows. One displays one file and the other window displays the other file. There is no "Ediff control window" that I can see.

Hmm... you're supposed to get a third window (normally shown in a small separate Emacs frame) showing a buffer called "*Ediff Control Panel*". The modeline doesn't show the buffer name, tho. And the frame is quite small, something line 2 lines by 20 columns or so (one line is the mode line which just shows how many diffs were found).

IMO that separate Ediff Control Panel frame is an unfortunate default.

Haines, add the following to your init file, and you'll see the Ediff Control Panel at the bottom of the frame:

(setq ediff-window-setup-function #'ediff-setup-windows-plain)
