Working with Multiple Windows on Emacs

Split a window into two horizontally: [Ctrl-X] [3]
Split a window into two vertically: [Ctrl-X] [2]
Switch to [O]ther Window : [Ctrl-X] [O] Oh, not zero

Delete current window (remove split) : Ctrl-X 0 This is Ctrl+X and a Zero

My custom emacs file:
Options added are custom color, removed the split window on start.

(add-to-list 'load-path "/path/to/color-theme.el/file")
(require 'color-theme)
(eval-after-load "color-theme"
'(progn
(color-theme-initialize)
(color-theme-clarity)))
(custom-set-variables
;; custom-set-variables was added by Custom.
;; If you edit it by hand, you could mess it up, so be careful.
;; Your init file should contain only one such instance.
;; If there is more than one, they won't work right.
