What does it stands for?

hi guys so we all know (maybe not all) that ^ stands for ctrl so ^x means ctrl+x but what dos the M stands for ? for example M-U tried to do M+U but it didn’t work , can somebody help?

What you’re looking for is called a Meta key, this key can vary depending on the system and keyboard layout. maybe in your case is the Alt or Option key. So, when you see a combination like “M-U,” it means you’re expected to press the Meta key and the “U” key simultaneously.


thanks it was the alt key
