Mystery "N" non-clickable box appeared
« on: April 25, 2013, 09:29:50 PM »

Can't help but be reminded of the film "The Net" with Sandra Bullock, in which a gang of uberhackers, called "praetorians" announce themself by a pi-sign.

What is that "N" box for? It doesn't do anything. It doesn't even have a interactivity in it (like clicking on it would make the thing look like it's being pressed). Or maybe, when I tried to click on it, my computer and brains were seized by Exxon oil or Microsoft or something like that. It appears when filling in the email address and disappears if you deselect the registration window, and won't appear again unless you cancel the registration and start again.

Gonna go sleep now, zzz... mumble... grumble.. pffhhlzzz... zz... no.. evil.. corporation... take.. brain.. zzzzz.. must.. buy.. oil.. and.. windows.. zzzz

The N is a screen remain when you click "Alt"... But, I think it shouldn't be there ;D

They are usual shortcut keys, when you press the Alt key it toggles on/off it displays the shortcut key.

The easiest way to see it in action is to open the avastUI and click the Alt key and you will see the shortcut keys displayed.
