By default, all the buffers in the desktop are restored at one go.
However, this may be slow if there are a lot of buffers in the
desktop. You can specify the maximum number of buffers to restore
immediately with the variable @code{desktop-restore-eager}; the
remaining buffers are restored ``lazily,'' when Emacs is idle.

@findex pc-bindings-mode
@cindex ``PC'' key bindings
The command @kbd{M-x pc-bindings-mode} sets up certain key bindings
for ``PC compatibility''---what people are often used to on PCs---as
follows: @kbd{M-Backspace} does undo, and @kbd{C-Escape} does
@item PC Selection mode

@cindex PC Selection minor mode

@cindex selection, PC
The command @kbd{M-x pc-selection-mode} toggles a global minor mode
that emulates the mark, copy, cut and paste commands of various other
systems---an interface known as CUA. It establishes the key bindings
of PC mode, and also modifies the bindings of the cursor keys and the
@kbd{next}, @kbd{prior}, @kbd{home} and @kbd{end} keys. It does not
provide the full set of CUA key bindings---the fundamental Emacs keys
@kbd{C-c}, @kbd{C-v} and @kbd{C-x} are not changed.
The standard keys for moving around (@kbd{right}, @kbd{left},
@kbd{up}, @kbd{down}, @kbd{home}, @kbd{end}, @kbd{prior}, @kbd{next},
called ``move-keys'') deactivate the mark in PC selection mode.
However, using @kbd{Shift} together with the ``move keys'' activates
the region over which they move. The copy, cut and paste functions
are available on @kbd{C-insert}, @kbd{S-delete} and @kbd{S-insert}
Turning @code{pc-selection-mode} off restores the old key bindings of
these keys.

@cindex CUA key bindings
@vindex cua-enable-cua-keys
The command @kbd{M-x cua-mode} sets up key bindings that are
compatible with the Common User Access (CUA) system used in many other
applications. @kbd{C-x} means cut (kill), @kbd{C-c} copy, @kbd{C-v}
paste (yank), and @kbd{C-z} undo. Standard Emacs commands like
@kbd{C-x C-c} still work, because @kbd{C-x} and @kbd{C-c} only take
effect when the mark is active. However, if you don't want these
bindings at all, set @code{cua-enable-cua-keys} to nil.
In CUA mode, using @kbd{Shift} together with the movement keys
activates the region over which they move. The standard (unshifted)
movement keys deactivate the mark, and typed text replaces the active
region as in Delete-Selection mode (@pxref{Graphical Kill}).
CUA mode also provides enhanced rectangle support with visible
rectangle highlighting. Use @kbd{Shift-RET} to start a rectangle,
extend it using the movement commands, and cut or copy it using
@kbd{C-x} or @kbd{C-c}.
