Can anyone tell me how to get the letters in the menus to show the
underline under the letter that will activate the selection? Does
that make sense? I'll try to make it clearer.

On my XP pro machine, one letter in each menu and submenu item (i.e.
File, Edit, View etc.in IE or OE) is underlined indicating that it is
a keyboard shortcut. These underlined letters do not appear on
hubby's machine (same OS). I know I read some time ago about how to
set this, but I can't find it for love or money.

Anyone know the answer to this?

Thanks,

Lorraine

It worked. My mind wasn't in gear I guess. Didn't think about
looking at desktop properties. Don't know what I'd do without these
newsgroups!

Thanks JD!
