Key Combinations

  1. Press and hold the Alt key, followed by the x key. Then release both.
  2. An alternative is to press and release the ESC key, then press the x key.
C-u 0 M-x byte-recompile-directory
  1. Press and hold the Ctrl key, followed by the u key. Then release both.
  2. Press 0 (the zero key, not the letter O).
  3. Press M-x
  4. Type byte-recompile-directory, then press enter.
  5. Now it asks for the directory to recompile. Edit the line to read c:\Program Files\emacs\site-lisp\ (unless you installed emacs in a different directory). Note: You can use either forward slashes or back slashes when specifying the path here.
  6. Close Emacs once the compiling is done. (it should compile about 50 files)
