I use Vim plugin NerdTree. If I have to quickly add a file, the NerdTreeMenu I get by pressing m is very helful.

How I can close my NerdTreeMenu? I'm unable to find information in any documentation on closing the NerdTree menu.

It is either :NERDTreeClose to close it, or :NERDTreeToggle to toggle it on and off :)

Edit: @Gustav Blomqvist reminded me, that you can also use the classic vim exit commands while the NERDTree window is in focus:

  • :q

  • ZZ 2x(Shift + z)

  • ^Wq (Ctrl-w + q)

    :q in the NERDTree window also works. :) A tip is to bind :NERDTreeToggle Ctrl+n to toggle NERDTree nnoremap <C-n> :NERDTreeToggle<CR> Nov 18, 2022 at 10:42
  • Yeah right you could also do it that way. You can also use the classic vim exit commands (:q / ZZ / ^Wq) I will write that to my answer, thanks :))

If the NERDTree window is in focus then just a simple q will work.
