That should not happen. Under Windows Alt+F opens the File menu. Pressing
just the F key opens the Remote Files dialog.

The keys have completely changed since 5.1 (e.g. creating a text document
was O since the OpenOffice days and switched to W) which might be bad news
for people with accessibility problems... 

On a positive note the keys are more logic now and it fixed the problem with
"Recent Files" and "Draw Drawing" which were both assigned to R and caused
that none would be launched (focus would just jump from one option to the
other) until you pressed enter.

I think this is more an UI/Design task than a QA task.
