Normal Mode Binding To Just Quit

I’m already familiar with the normal mode binding to write and quit — ZZ. It turns out there is an equivalent binding to quit without writing. Hit ZQ and Vim will quit the current window disregarding any unsaved changes. This behaves in the same way as if you had executed the :q! command.

See :help ZQ.
