No further information about the Ctrl+S problem has been provided since several months, closing this bug report as invalid. If someone can explain what the problem is with Ctrl+S not working, this can be reopened and discussed further.

I confirm, Ctrl+C does work for copying selected text in the console window, when no computations are running.

By the way, I can not confirm for sure, bu in the past, when Octave was terminated during calculation, the next environment run had no CTRL+[] functions, except basic IBM CUA hotkeys, like CTRL+Ins. The second restart was bringing hotkey combinations back. In 4.4.0 I did not see this behavior yet. But still, I did not try to reproduce it by intention.

Since you are referring to bug #53953, Ctrl+C is not working for interrupting running processes. Does it work for copying selected text in the console window?

Regarding Ctrl+S: I guess you mean saving a file in the editor. What shortcut is configured for this (settings dialog, tab "Shortcuts").

All the other Ctrl commands are working, except for Ctrl + S. But that works if I right click my mouse and use the command.
