I think this is OK that keyboard does not respond to c because you simply
continue your calculations. Try to run some long cycle increasing j by 1 at
every step. Than do Ctrl C. And choose from the above menu i. You should get
a new prompt of Mathematica (say In[2] =)type j and press return
Mathematica should give you an encreased value of j. Not only that if you
limit the maximal value of j say by 100,then interapt Math. at say j=24 go
to i and write j=100.Then exit interactive mode (Return []).Mathematica
will use now j=100 and will exit from the cycle.
