Back when I had XP, all I had to do was to hit the Esc key to STOP an action, but with Windows7, whenever I hit the Esc key, nothing happens, and the action continues to load, or display, or whatever.

Does this WIN 7 even have such a key?

I'm not aware of any except when a file search is running; in the case of a file search you will see a green progress bar and there is a red X at the end which you can click to stop the search.

Hopefully computers are faster now and the action should finish before you would have time to cancel it.

Another tip: If the action was a delete, move, or copy in Windows Explorer there is an Edit > Undo to reverse the last operation.
