I need to do a friendly system to novice users, so I thought to make an interface easy to use, windows like. Well, the first thing a thought, is to do a structure of menus like the office, ok ? In fact, I've been testing with the coolbar and toolbar controls, and I reached to the tool bar with icons to get the options directly. But the seconds step, the menues, is still a problem to me, because I don't know how to do with the toolbar to make that type of menues. I've tested with the drop-down option within the tool bar, but it's not the right one. Can you help me ?

You could use standard menu created with menu editor from VB. Then you could show them at click event (like the righ popup menu in a text box, in example)
Do a search for popumenu statement at msdn to know how is done.

If I understand you correctly, you want also be able to move the menu-bar which is originally located at the top of the screen, but like in office xp you can bring it down.

Don't think that's possible, it is also not possible in the VB IDE!

But why make it so difficult, novice users never do something with the menubar

The drop down option in the toolbar is what looks the same as the dropdown options in the normal toolbars of office except without the icons
