i take it you want to send the Alt-g to bring down the Go submenu and then the h to select the Home subitem. if this were to work at all (which it may not), you'd have to send at least 2 messages. possible solutions:

SendMessage(hWnd, WM_SYSKEYDOWN, VK code for g, ???);
SendMessage(hWnd, WM_KEYDOWN, VK code for h, ???);

SendMessage(hWnd, WM_SYSCHAR, Ansii code for g, ???);
SendMessage(hWnd, WM_CHAR, Ansii code for h, ???);

the reason there are 2 is because to accomplish what you want requires 2 steps: bring down the Go submenu, select an item off that submenu.

another thing you might try is just send a WM_COMMAND with the menu id of the Home item (which you can get by running Spy++)..
