Win2k problem...

I have an MFC App Wizard app that contains Menus. On some Win2K machines the "underline" for Menus do not appear. i.e. "F" for File Menu, "E" of Edit Menu etc do not appear underlined. However the short cut key operations (Alt-F, Alt-E) etc continue to work!
Why does this happen? Is it a Win2K bug or ...?

thanks in advance,
Vijay K

No, this is a 'new feature' of W2k. You will notice that the 'underlines' will appear once you press the 'Alt' key to access the menu.

BTW, you can adjust this behaviour using the control panel - choose 'Desktop' and go to the 'Effects' tab, the downmost checkbox controls this behaviour (no english W2k here, so I cannot tell you how that option is named)

It is called "Hide keyboard navigation indicators until I use the Alt Key" :-)
