As seen here, sometimes when I'm loading a map, especially on Community Quickplay, I sometimes want to opt out. Is there a certain way I can quickly exit this screen back to the menu?

I've tried pressing Esc, but that doesn't seem to do anything. I can get the console to open, but I can't do anything except "exit", which closes the game.

You can try this command into the console to disconnect from the server:


Or even better You could bind a key for this command in Your autoexec.cfg like this:

bind q disconnect
