Minor issue: mouse click required to close results dialog?
« on: March 11, 2010, 09:30:39 PM »
Running avast! free 5.0.462 under XP Home SP3.  Working fine, however, after the program update from previous version, I find that hitting ENTER/RETURN does not close the filescan results dialog, which it used to. That is, selecting a file to scan from the Explorer context menu, scan runs, results window pops up, but the "Close" button is not highlighted/enabled by default, and ENTER/RETURN will not activate it -- the only way to close the popup is to mouse-click the button. This is minor but a PITA, since I'm 100% used to just pressing the ENTER/RETURN key and being done.

Is this something which has indeed been set this way -- or is it malfunctioning for me?  If deliberate, is there any way to restore a default enabling of the "Close" button in the context-scan results window?

I don't think it's deliberate... btw the Esc key works though, doesn't it?
If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.

Is it worth considering this as a future update to the settings, given that the screen didn't appear in 4.8 unless you checked the option to display the results. Perhaps now the display is automatic in version 5 it should have an option not to display it ?

Such a feature is already implemented IIRC but it didn't make it to the last program update yet...

Thanks, I'm sure that will make for some happy campers.

ESC does indeed work. Still, I see no reason why "close" wouldn't best be enabled/selected by default, at least as long as the scan results are negative. Hey, even if it's just for me... make it so.
