Bug Description

Pressing F10 activates the File menu (WindowsXP) even if this key has been configured for other use. That means F10 has to be pressed twice (to decativate then menu and activate the other command).

According to the Microsoft Support article about "Keyboard shortcuts for Windows" Alt and F10 are both affecting under Windows typically the menu bar.

- F10: Activates menu bar options
- ALT+underlined letter in dialog box item: Move to the corresponding item
