I'm new to Blender, and I know this question may sound weird, but I didn't find any answer to this:

After I press Ctrl + NumPad 0, I go into the camera's view. After that, I want to get out of it; but I don't know how!

    $\begingroup$ You can also hit and drag MMB to activate panning; viewpoint will exit from camera view. $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Aug 25 '16 at 11:16

To get out of Ctrl+NumPad0 which goes in camera view, you can use any "moving" command MMB MMB (or Alt LMB LMB, if Emulate Three-Button Mouse is enabled, which it typically is for touchpad setups. It is enabled by selecting Emulate Three-Button Mouse under the Input tab in the Blender User Preferences.)

Some numpad commands :

Home center 3D View

NumPad0 camera Perspective

NumPad1 front ortho

Ctrl+NumPad 1 back ortho

NumPad3 right ortho

Ctrl+NumPad3 left ortho

NumPad7 top ortho

Ctrl+NumPad7 bottom ortho

NumPad5 toggle between perspective and ortho

NumPad 4/6, 2/8 roll scene left/right, up/down

Ctrl+NumPad 4/6, 2/8 scroll scene left/right, up/down

Shift+NumPad 4/6 roll scene clockwise / anti-clockwise

NumPad+ zoom in

NumPad- zoom out

NumPad. focus on the selection

  • $\begingroup$ Scrolling while in camera view will zoom camera view, nothing else. Alt+LMB is some new shortcut I heard for the first time. $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Aug 25 '16 at 11:20
  • $\begingroup$ @MrZak, for Alt+LMB I am using a touchpad, that may be why... I feel it easier as near to the keyboard... ok for scrolling though $\endgroup$ – lemon Aug 25 '16 at 11:24
