Menu Access Keys

I am facing a problem with menus. Using the menu designer, I am creating a menu. The menu items have captions to represent shortcut keys. For example, the captions are &File, &Open, E&xit, etc. However, when I am executing my program, the menu is displayed without the access key alphabets being underlined. I am using VB6 on windows 2000. Can anyone tell me what is wrong and how it can be resolved.

right-click on your desktop and open properties. from there go to the Effects tab. Unselect "hide keyboard navigation indicators until I use the Alt key"

Check "WIndow List" for each Menu Item that should be accesible via Meta-letter shortcuts (meta = alt).

Sorry, I was a little fast on that one. That only works with one menu.

I noticed this problem long ago in Windows 2000.  The shortcut keys show up as soon as you press/hold the Alt-key.

Hmm...I guess emoreau has the (probably) preferred solution.
