    When logging in and on some other instances, the smiley symbol on the keyboard is replaced by something looking like a "sun".
    Picture attached.
    Does anyone have any idea, what to make of this key?

    ...just received the answer in another forum:
    The "sun" hides the flashing of the keys when entering passwords. So it's harder to guess the password for someone looking over your shoulder.
