Hi Guys,

An idea for a simple, small and useful (?) feature. I am a keyboard evangelist and as such I use Terminals with the keyboard as much as I can...  :-)

Scenario for starting Terminals:
  1. Run Terminals (get to the EXE shortcut using the keyboard arrows and hit Enter)
  2. Type the general password to unlock the application and hit Enter again.
  3. Get to the Connect To textbox. Ooops... To get to the textbox you have to use the mouse, darn...
    1. Lift your hand.
    2. Grab the mouse.
    3. Locate the arrow on screen by shaking the mouse a bit.
    4. Move the mouse till the arrow is over the textbox.
    5. Press the left mouse button.
  4. Type the first character of the server I want to connect to.
  5. Hit Enter once more.
I think that ALT + C or something similar is shorter than the 5 steps in line 3, don't you?  :-)

Done.  The key is F4 (random key, let me know if you want it changed...)
