The default exit sequence in nano control-x. If nano's keys have been rebound via the .nanorc or you changed your keyboard mapping then I cannot help, but the default is control-x. If you have modified the file it will ask you when you exit whether you wish to save those changes.

Have a nice day and thank you for using nano.

Dear nano help,

I went to:

and could not find out how to quit nano. I executed the command:

nano hosts

and want to quit or exit without screwing up the hosts file. I did not
make a copy of the file before executing nano.

There is nothing at all in online manual:
nor the ManPage:
nor Nanorc man page:

I know I am an R-Tard but could you please clearly and unambiguously
indicate how to exit nano without modifying the file. Please also
indicate how to exit and save the changes.

Do I press and hold the key with the Apple logo and cloverleaf symbol
on it and then lowercase "x"? or do I use the "ctrl" key and "x" or
"ctrl"-"shift"-"x" or ??

Thanks in advance!
