Ctrl + C glitch

Ctrl + C does not close out the rails server in the cmd prompt for me when using windows. Any help?

Try these steps: 1: Ctrl + pause 2: Ctrl + break 3: Ctrl + Z

anyone of those should work.

on windows, I use ctr + function + break. Then type 'y' and 'enter'

I prefer to use Powershell instead of CMD. When I use Ctrl-Pause it shuts the program down and I have to open it up again to use it.
