    Hello everyone,

    maybe it's a very dumb question but it vexes me. And I hope that somebody can enlighten me:
    What is the meaning of the middle symbol at the top right corner of the main menu?
    (There are three symbols: a cogwheel, the symbol in question and a camera.)
    What is or what was the purpose of the symbol in the middle?
    Nothing happens if I click it. There is no description.
    I've spent half an hour to search for an answer but couldn't find any explanation.
    I would be very grateful if someone could explain the meaning of this symbol to me.

    Oh, come on!
    Don't give me hints.
    I need answers. ;-)
    Does it mean that someone comes to my rescue if I press the wrong button(s)?
    (Du könntest es mir auch auf deutsch erklären. Ich habe echt keinen Schimmer und Deinen Hinweis verstehe ich gerade nicht, weil ich scheinbar Scheuklappen aufhabe.)

    It previously sent you to the helpdesk, but it might not be working?

    Thank you.
    So it doesn't work on your end as well, does it?

    Not in a position to give it a go at the moment, just thought I'd let you know what it's supposed to do at least :)

    Okay, thank you.
    So it's probably time for me for an integrity check.

    No, I haven't.
    ...
    Okay, I just tested it and it worked.
    Thank you for your help @everyone - now I have peace of mind.
