Could a feature be added in the installer where one could define, e.g. With a checkbox, to add a key to the nvda shortcut? This would be especially useful, since on different keyboards ctrl+alt+letters invoke special simbols, e.g. Right brace '}' on a hungarian keyboard.
When the regional settings is Hungarian, the English license appears .

The Windows shell doesn't allow modifiers other than ctrl+alt for shortcut keys. The best we can do is provide a checkbox to not create the shortcut key.

This is a separate issue. Please file unrelated issues as separate tickets.

Fixed in r3466. Now the creation of the dkesotop icon and therefore the shortcut key, can be disabled from the components page.

If the checkbox is checked there are icons everywhere. If not, there's an icon on the desktop but none in the start menu. However the ctrl+alt+n hotkey still works.

Are you sure you're using the checkbox on the components page (which specifically mentions the desktop shortcut)?

The only checkbox visible on the components page is the nvda service for the log on screen and for the secure desktop. The one I tried was the don't create desktop icons checkbox.
