Thanks all: I tried it on my laptop and it worked just perfectly as Syed shows below. I did it on my desktop special keyboard, and found that control-q was mapped by another application for a different purpose. I shut down the other application, rebooted the machine, and now it works perfectly there as well.
I told you it was a dumb question!! Thanks everyone for your responses.
