Delete all frames except the selected one.
@end table
The @kbd{C-x 5 0} (@code{delete-frame}) command will never delete
the last frame, to prevent you from losing the ability to interact
with the Emacs process. Note that when Emacs is run as a daemon
(@pxref{Emacs Server}), there is always a ``virtual frame'' that
remains after all the ordinary, interactive frames are deleted. In
this case, @kbd{C-x 5 0} can delete the last interactive frame; you
can use @command{emacsclient} to reconnect to the Emacs session.
@vindex focus-follows-mouse
To make the command @kbd{C-x 5 o} work properly, you should tell
Emacs how the system (or the window manager) handles focus-switching
between windows. There are two possibilities: either simply moving
the mouse onto a window selects it (gives it focus), or you have to
click on it to do so. On X, this focus policy also affects whether
the focus is given to a frame that Emacs raises. Unfortunately there
is no way Emacs can find out automatically which way the system
handles this, so you have to explicitly say, by setting the variable
@code{focus-follows-mouse}. If just moving the mouse onto a window
selects it, that variable should be @code{t}; if a click is necessary,
the variable should be @code{nil}. The default is @code{t}.
On X, you may have to tell Emacs how the system (or the window
manager) handles focus-switching between windows, in order for the
command @kbd{C-x 5 o} (@code{other-frame}) to work properly.
Unfortunately, there is no way for Emacs to detect this automatically,
so you should set the variable @code{focus-follows-mouse}. If simply

The window manager that is part of MS-Windows always gives focus to
a frame that raises, so this variable has no effect in the native
