In GNOME/KDE/Windows, well pretty much every where else I think, upon entering the "shutdown"
menu, in Xfce the "quit" thing, usually the *options* will be highlighted, so that it is quick and easy to
select what you want, and then just press ENTER to execute your choice.
In Xfce I have to first select my option (if it is not "Quit session" that is), and then press the OK
button. I would think of it as more intuitive if focus was given to the selections initially, and that a
press of ENTER would execute it. Right now (being the keyboard user I am), I first have to tab my way
to the options, and then tab back to the OK button, and then pressing enter. Instead, I would like to
be able to select what I want and then it's just a matter of whacking ENTER :-)
Steps to Reproduce:
Can someone confirm this "bug" or at least vote for it to be important enough to be fixed?
If this was fixed, the focus should also default to the radio buttons, so that one could quickly switch
to whatever the user wanted, and just press enter.
I agree that the options should have the focus initially, but it seems to me
that the enter key deliberately doesn't confirm the selection, to avoid
At any rate, setting the focus sounds pretty trivial. Someone (hint, hint)
should provide a patch.

i vote for it. though not a keyboard-only user it is still nice to be able to
shut down or log out with one hand (like i'm used to from other environments).
remembering the last selection would be even better but just having the
1. radio button group with the focus, and
2. the enter key working while focus is on the radio buttons
would be really nice.
Fixed in 4.4...
