Hot keys are an integral part of using Universal Shield, because they let you run Universal Shield in Stealth Mode. Hot keys are keyboard combinations that activate a certain task, or process, such as a key combination that causes the Universal Shield software to run.
Enable Hot Keys
Select Enable hot keys to turn on the feature. You must set hot keys to use Universal Shield in Stealth Mode (see "Stealth Mode").
Ask for Password...
Selecting Ask for Password when changing the protection mode causes a password prompt to open if you use a hot-key combination to turn protection on or off. This prevents someone else from using your hot-key combination to circumvent your protections.
Open Universal Shield
Set the hot-key combination that opens Universal Shield. This works when Universal Shield is not running and is the only way to access Universal Shield in Stealth Mode.
Toggle Protection Mode
Set the hot-key combination that turns Universal Shield protection on and off. Protection enforces the Read, Write, Delete, and Visible settings for an object.
Enable Protection Keys
Enable protection keys lets you set a hot-key combination that only enables protection.
Disable Protection Keys
Disable protection keys lets you set a hot-key combination that only disables protection.
Using separate hot keys for enabling and disabling protection may provide you more security than using one hot-key combination to toggle protection.
Notify About Changes...
Selecting Notify about changes to the protection mode causes a message box to open when you change the security mode and alert you with information about the current security mode (ENABLED or DISABLED).
