Keyboard shortcut ALT+SPACE shows a distorted menu

Technote (troubleshooting)


Your Notes 9.0.1 client was recently upgraded to Feature Pack 10 (FP10). You press Alt+Space on your keyboard as a shortcut to access the window menu when working in your Notes Inbox. Instead of a small menu drop-down, the resulting menu spans the entire screen width and contains no menu labels.


Steps to reproduce:
1. Launch the Notes client and open the mail Inbox.
2. Press the ALT + SPACE keyboard shortcut to open the window's Restore/Maximize menu option.
3. Press ESC key and again hit ALT+SPACE keys

This issue is only reproducible when working within the Mail Inbox view.
