    Quick question – how can I exit a game without rebooting the whole system? Perhaps there is some keyboard shortcut that does it, but I can not find it. I use retropie 3.0 on raspberry pi 1 model B+.

    Thank you!

    Hey There,
    usually the default escape button is the Esc key, but if that doesnt work you will need to add in two lines to your Retroarch.cfg file:
    input_enable_hotkey_btn =
    input_exit_emulator =
    Any Questions, Please Ask!

    Thanks for your answer! I accidentally found out that if you press ‘select’ and ‘start’ on your pad in the same time, than game exits to retropie menu 🙂 Perhaps ‘esc’ was working in 2.X version, I’m using 3.0.

    I believe it’s good idea to add this to wiki/F.A.Q. – how do you think?

    Its already there on the wiki. They are known as hotkeys. See the bottom of this post.

    It is there indeed – now I can see, but it’s within ‘Configuring Controllers (RetroArch)’ section, which is quite confusing. I was looking for keyboard shortcut, didn’t this that it’s possible using gamepad only 🙂 Many thanks for your help!

    you can have it configured to your keyboard as well.

    in the setup script you can go into SETUP and then option 310- change hotkey behaviour and select option 2 Press ALT to enable hotkeys

    Then you can press alt+esc to exit your emulator

    I’ll stay with gamepad solution, but thanks for this hint 😉

    I’ve also added wiki post about this.
