Another roadblock in my journey to master Emacs was that I’d constantly have the help menu popping up on me. It took me a while to figure out what was causing it as I type rather quickly so by the time I saw it come up I didn’t know what button caused it.Â Turns out it was every time I hit backspace. Since this is rather annoying I looked into it and found a solution to it.
Open up your ~/.emacs file and add the following entry:
(global-set-key [?\C-h] 'delete-backward-char)
This will leave you with no binding for the help menu, but you can easily rebind that to another key combination.
