On the Subject of Shortcuts

There has to be a faster way to do that thing... If only there was a shortcut.

This module features 2 screens and 4 buttons. Press the correct buttons between 10 and 15 times to defuse this module.

The module will ask about shortcuts and what their purpose is. The top screen will show the application in which the shortcut is used and the second screen will show the shortcut itself.

1 of the 4 buttons will have the correct purpose written on top of it, the other 3 will have wrong purposes written on top of them.

When the correct button is pressed, the module will ask about a new shortcut and the buttons change their labels as well.

When a wrong button is pressed, the module will give out a strike and not change.

On the next pages the applications with their shortcuts will be listed, as well as their correct purpose.
