I have VB6, made a frmAbout from a Template, but don't know how to show it from the windows system menu.

You know, when you click on the top left icon of an application, you get a system menu, and often theres an "About / Info" entry, just not in my VB app.

How to configure that it works ?

BTW, I know how to add it in the normal menu ... I'm just asking for this special system menu.
