Topic "Strange keyboard shortcut for Copy path to clipboard?"

When I've logged on to a server using SFTP and right-click on the white empty area in the left side window displaying the local directory, I get a menu showing the following action options:

Go To ->
Refresh Ctrl-R
Add to Bookmarks Ctrl-B
Copy Path to Clipboard Ctrl-AKUUTTIAKSENTTI
Create Directory F7

What's with the keyboard shortcut for "Copy Path to Clipboard", Ctrl-AKUUTTIAKSENTTI? Where is it coming from?

If I do the same in the right side (remote directory) window, it shows the keyboard shortcut for "Copy Path to Clipboard" as Ctrl- (Swedish a with a dot on top in case the character is not displayed correctly at your end). Even this seems like a bit odd KB shortcut, since only Scandinavian countries have this letter in their keyboards. But why is it different from the "Ctrl-AKUUTTIAKSENTTI" for the local dir?

It seems to me that "Ctrl-AKUUTTIAKSENTTI" is a translation to Finnish from something, if I just bluntly translate it back to English it would be sth. like "acute accent".

Not a big deal but I thought I'd report it anyway. Using the latest and greatest WinSCP version 4.3.7 build 1679 in Windows 7 Professional SP-1 64-bit. Not using any language translations, Windows and WinSCP are both full English only.

The actual shortcuts are Ctrl+[ and Ctrl+].
Are you using Finish Windows?
Can you please try 5.0.6 beta?

I'm using English Windows, no translations - this is why I am confused on where the text is coming from.

Did a full upgrade to 5.0.6 beta, but it's still the same. I'm attaching screenshots from both menus so you get a good look at what I'm talking about.

Thanks. Do you have at least locale or default code page set to Finnish in your English Windows?

I've set to Finnish everything I could think of. But no change. The shortcuts are still as expected, Ctrl+[ and Ctrl+]. Can you try to set you locale and other settings to English?
