Shortcut Key Incorrectly Displayed in MS-DOS Shell (74257)

The information in this article applies to:
    Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 5.0

This article was previously published under Q74257


When you attempt to define an application shortcut key for a program item in MS-DOS Shell, combinations of CTRL, ALT, SHIFT, and the number "2" are displayed incorrectly. Where the number "2" should appear, a double-headed arrow is displayed. This is an error in the way the key combination is shown; the defined key combination still functions correctly.

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in MS-DOS version 5.0. This problem does not occur in later versions of MS-DOS.
