PM2 - how to access terminal?



  • With PM2 installed, MM starts OK.
    Ctrl+Q to access desktop, but PM2 kicks in, so how do you get access to the terminal, and desktop with PM2 running?!

    Thank you.

    You can either minimize the MM window by pressing your ALT key and then choose Minimize from the Menu Bar at the top, or, Choose Exit from the File Menu in the Menu Bar. Pressing Ctrl+M will Minimize your MM window, as well.

    Now, with PM2 installed, it will relaunch the mirror. So, minimize the mirror first, and then type pm2 stop mm in your terminal so the mirror doesn’t relaunch. pm2 start mm to relaunch
