The term window becomes the console. You should NOT start View in the background, or your shell might not give View control over the term window once you switch to console. If you did start View in the background then type "fg" into your term window to switch it to the foreground. (All assuming you are using a shell with job control, like bash).

See above.

A normal kill should do. No need for the brutal -9. Alternatively Ctrl-C should do as well, provided that View is the foreground process. -- Holger Kruse [holger--rebol--com]
