Deleting and Rearranging Windows
Get rid of the selected window (`delete-window'). That is a zero.
Get rid of all windows except the selected one
Make selected window taller (`enlarge-window').
Make selected window wider (`enlarge-window-horizontally').
To delete a window, type `C-x 0' (`delete-window'). (That is a
zero.) The space occupied by the deleted window is given to an
adjacent window (but not the minibuffer window, even if that is active
at the time). Once a window is deleted, its attributes are forgotten;
only restoring a window configuration can bring it back. Deleting the
window has no effect on the buffer it used to display; the buffer
continues to exist, and you can select it in any window with `C-x b'.
`C-x 1' (`delete-other-windows') is more powerful than `C-x 0'; it
deletes all the windows except the selected one (and the minibuffer);
the selected window expands to use the whole frame except for the echo
To readjust the division of space among vertically adjacent windows,
use `C-x ^' (`enlarge-window'). It makes the currently selected window
get one line bigger, or as many lines as is specified with a numeric
argument. With a negative argument, it makes the selected window
smaller. `C-x }' (`enlarge-window-horizontally') makes the selected
window wider by the specified number of columns. The extra screen
space given to a window comes from one of its neighbors, if that is
possible. If this makes any window too small, it is deleted and its
space is given to an adjacent window. The minimum size is specified by
the variables `window-min-height' and `window-min-width'.
