I use the & for the quick shortcut keys on my command buttons but for some reason when I run the program they don't show up.  They still work if I press the correct key, they just don't show up.  Any ideas as to what the problem may be?   Btw I'm using VB .NET.

This is a Windows setting.

Right-click your desktop and open Properties.
Go to Appearance tab.
Click Effects...
Uncheck "Hide Underlined letters for keyboard navigation until I press the Alt key"

I should have mentioned that it is nearly exactly the same as my teacher's program, yet his has the little underline thingy and mine doesn't.

That did work however... thanks.  I would still like to know why his worked even when mine didn't.
