To open an xterm, use Alt+Enter. Windows do not provide minimize/mazimize or close buttons, so type exit when you are finished using an xterm. To leave the window manager and return to the login screen, type killall i3 from within an xterm.

The [2][2] contains the default key bindings and instructions for customizing i3.
