For those of you not familiar with Emacs lingo, an Emacs frame is what most window managers would call a window, while an Emacs window is any of the regions displaying a buffer inside a frame. Usual ways of creating windows in Emacs are C-x 2, C-x 3, C-x 4 f, and so on. See EmacsWiki:Window and EmacsWiki:WindowsAndFrames for more.

Frames

Again, an Emacs frame stands alone, outside of your main Emacs collections of windows and buffers.

 

Common frame commands

(:source:)
  C-x 5 o -- other frame
  C-x 5 0 -- delete frame
  C-x 5 1 -- delete other frame
  C-x 5 2 -- make frame
  C-x C-z -- Iconify Frame

 

 

switch-to-buffer will switch to the selected buffer in the current frame
This is usualy mapped to C-x b
BUT if you are using ido-mode, then it does not work (and switched to the buffer in the buffer’s current frame, which may not be your current frame).
You will have to manually call switch-to-buffer, or re-map it, in this case.
