Kill current window.

If there is an exec command running then it is killed. Otherwise the process (shell) running in the window receives a HANGUP condition, the window structure is removed and screen (your display) switches to another window. When the last window is destroyed, screen exits. After a kill, screen switches to the previously displayed window.

Note: emacs users should keep this command in mind, when killing a line. It is recommended not to use C-a as the screen escape key or to rebind kill to C-a K.
