Alt+ Function keys can switch different consoles, to exit as druuna said ctrl+d or exit

Hi,

@Kris Ice: That is only true when you are running a window manager (like Gnome, KDE, XFCE etc) and want to go from window manager to a console.

If you are not running a window manager (or already are at the console) ALT+FN switches consoles (1 to 6 are normally available).
