You use the console to manually bind commands to a key:
Enter a command chain and press once enter to send the command.
bind k kill
(Use this to kill your self if you get stuck)
bind r reconnect
(Use this function to reconnect to the last server.)
bind d disconnect
(Use this function to disconnect from the server.)
bind q quit
(Use this function to fast quit the game.)
You can also use commands to fix small problems such as vid_restart to applay the new display settings without restarting the entire game.
The game offers much more commands you can get the full list of commands by using the command cmd_list.
You can paste Text from the clipboard into the console by pressing the middle mouse button.
