I use xterm with screen for my day to day needs. SO often I open several terminals in screen (using Ctrl+c). Later I have to close each of them my typing

$ exit

I was wondering is there any key binding in screen which will save me from the trouble of typing exit, that I just press that combination and terminal will close (only terminal not whole screen session).

I tried kill (Ctrl+K) but that kills the terminal which is very much different from exit (correct me if I am wrong).

So what would you suggest? Thanks for your time.s

You can quit all shells like a Gnome Terminal, login shell, ssh shell even shells created with suor sudo via the following key command:

This will work in screen, too.

If you want to close all sessions of screen, just type
Ctrl+A Ctrl+\
