      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      Pressing the ALT key generates much confusion among users. Many are pressing it unintentionally, and they wonder when other dialogs are activating when pressing a letter.
      This happens because of Mnemonics on the buttons.
      It would be better if the hotkeys will be active only as long as the ALT key is pressed, and not as it is now, even after is released. Just to make the ALT key work similar with CTRL key.
      Maybe you can create a method to switch to this mode somehow is this possible?
