How to exit Calibre reader

Probably, a dumb question.

I am using linuxserver docker of Calibre server (4.3).

When I double click on a book, Calibre reader opens and loads the book. So far OK.

But, I don't know how close the reader and get back to the Calibre main window.

The only fix I found: Make the reader enter full screen. Then again exit full screen. The reader window becomes small and I can see the main Calibre window behind it. When I click anywhere on the main window, the reader window disappears.

Must be an easy way.

Thanks.

right click or tap in the top third of the page to access the viewer controls.

Dear Kovid, first please accept my sincere gratitude for such a wonderful software.

Yes, I can access the viewer controls. But, there is nothing in those controls to close the viewer and get back to the main screen.

This is the main window: https://imgur.com/wHF5h32
This is the control area of the viewer: https://imgur.com/r4uDM9c

Thanks

Edit: Back button of the browser doesn't work as well. It takes us again to the viewer.

I'm totally confused. The calibre viewer is a separate program. You can switch between it and the main program just like you would switch between any other programs on your computer.

I have installed Calibre on my linux computer. It works. The viewer opens up as a separate window. So no problem.

I think the problem lies with the docker. From the Linuxserver docker hub page: "This image sets up the calibre desktop app and makes its interface available via Guacamole server in the browser."

So, the viewer opens up within the same browser tab. As there is nothing in the controls of the viewer to close the viewer, it stays there until the Calibre docker is restarted. The viewer should open in another browser tab.

Is there another method of installing Calibre on a remote server?

There is a quit shortcut in the viewer ctrl+q IIRC use that. As for other ways of running calibre on a server, use the calibre content server.

Thank you so much. Ctrl + q worked.

I will focus more on the content server for sharing. Thanks for the hint.

Alt F4 and two places on the title bar also close it on my Linux laptop (so Alt Space c works if the title bar is active).
However I may be misunderstanding the question.
