Sometimes I accidentally press ^ to open the console in OpenTTD. How do I close it again? Pressing ^ again does nothing. Commands quit and exit close the game. list_cmds doesn't list any command for closing the console. Pressing various other keys doesn't seem to help either.

I'm on a German keyboard if this matters.

According to OpenTTD wiki, there is a "Toggle Console" option in the help menu.

    Indeed, there is and it works! Meanwhile I tested with an English keyboard layout and here the same key that opens the console (`) also closes it. With a German keyboard layout this doesn't work, however.
