When I want four - I would expect the following to work:

but it does not.

You can enter a number after C-u, defaulting to 4, number can be
positive or negative.  When you type -, emacs things you are composing a
negative number.

Try "C-x k C-u" for all details.


Unless you have a custom keybinding that should be C-h k C-u
C-u by itself without the - uses 4 as the default in most cases.
C-u - needs a number after the hyphen. I kept trying C-x k (kill-buffer) and thought I had introduced a keybinding mod somewhere.
A synonym for C-h k is M-x describe-key
