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.

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.

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"

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.
