I don’t use Emacs that often anymore, but it’s occasionally quite useful. One thing I like is its shell buffers. Unfortunately, I’m always forgetting how to open more than one shell buffer at a time. Normally you can type M-x shell
to open a new shell buffer, but if you already have one open that will just switch to the existing one. The solution is to use M-x rename-buffer
to change the name of the first shell buffer before creating another one. The next time I forget, I’ll just search for this page.
