Pressing [CTRL] +[STOP] does not work! Instead they end (shutdown) openMSX emulator immediately. What should I do to break the execution of a basic running program?!

How exactly did you try to press CTRL + STOP?

Using the hacker keyboard
I press Fn to make other keys show like (numerical keys, F1 through F12, SyRq, Scrl, Brk, NumL, Home, End, PgUp, PgDn, Ins and Del. Then I press [Ctrl]+[Brk] but the openMSX shuts down.

openMSX gets only F1 to F5 and to use F6 to F10 I should press [shift]+F1/F5.
So, to try your suggestion I should:
press [Ctrl]+[shift]+F3 <- since openMSX treats [shift]+F3 as F8.
I will try it.

Actually, [Ctrl]+[Pause/Break] closes openMSX immediately. But MSX's STOP key is mapped to F8 key.

Maybe you'll have to remap keys on openMSX

No, press the PC F8 key, not the MSX F8 key (that has its usual MSX function).

Indeed, MSX STOP key is not mapped to Break, but to F8 of the host system.

Yes, [CTRL]+[PC F8] works. Thanks my friend.
