How does he change screen after 45 seconds?

When I have saved the changes in nano Tommy goes back to the other screen after 45 seconds. How does he do that? He just goes back, but I don't see, or hear him giving a command. Thanks.

From memory you exit nano (if that's what you mean he did) by pressing,

  • Control + X on Windows
  • Command + X on Mac

He presses Ctrl + X to exit the file

Then 'y' to save the changes

Then 'enter' to leave the filename as it is and return to command line
