9.1.2 Using capture

C-c c
Call the command org-capture. If you have templates defined see section 9.1.3 Capture templates, it will offer these templates for selection or use a new Org outline node as the default template. It will insert the template into the target file and switch to an indirect buffer narrowed to this new node. You may then insert the information you want.
C-c C-c
Once you have finished entering information into the capture buffer, C-c C-c will return you to the window configuration before the capture process, so that you can resume your work without further distraction.
C-c C-w
Finalize the capture process by refiling (see section 9.5 Refiling notes) the note to a different place. Please realize that this is a normal refiling command that will be executed--so the cursor position at the moment you run this command is important. If you have inserted a tree with a parent and children, first move the cursor back to the parent.
C-c C-k
Abort the capture process and return to the previous state.

You can also call org-capture in a special way from the agenda, using the k c key combination. With this access, any timestamps inserted by the selected capture template will default to the cursor date in the agenda, rather than to the current date.
