Hi Edukas..
Try this :

  Open1.Caption:='                Open';
  Save1.Caption:='      Save into file';
  Exit1.Caption:='                   E&xit';

I thought it is supposed to be

menuitem1.caption:= chr(8)+ 'Caption'?

ie by adding backspace character to the menuitem text in menu resource statement

I will check out why it doesn't work, may be the windows API has changed but M$ did tell us?

Very simple:

  {$IFDEF WIN32}
  ModifyMenu( MainMenu1.Handle, 3 {if 4th position}, MF_BYPOSITION or MF_POPUP or MF_HELP, Help1.Handle, PChar( Help1.Caption ) );
  {$ELSE}
  Help1.Caption := #8 + Help1.Caption;
  {$ENDIF}
