Since Alt+F its a mnemonic that opens the file menu; when you have
your own dhtml "file" menu you might want to have that to open on alt
Right now we get both our own menu and the system menu opened.
We managed to prevent this on IE in some way, although I remember that
there were some other shortcuts that we couldn't prevent. So I
thought; ok I'll open my app in a new window without the menu.
<button onclick="window.open('http://www.bindows.net', '_blank',
But the menu opens on alt+f anyway! Is that a bug or per design?
I also need to prevent tab sometimes, can that be done?
