I thought that was a Windows setting. Under Display Properties, Effects,
"Hide Keyboard navigation indicators until I use the Alt key".
Why would I ever want to do that, BTW?

Where are you finding this setting? I just looked and didn't see it.

Oh, I'm on XP and don't have an "Effects" under Display Properties. I checked a 2000 machine here and the setting was checked. The only thing I can think of is that it cleans things up just a teensy bit and for someone that likes to be squeaky clean and doesn't EVER use keyboard shortcuts, I guess maybe it has some value. I've never seen or heard of it before, though.

That's been unchecked ever since I switched to XP. SW2003 had the underscores, no propblem. SW2004 does not. But SW2004 does have a lot of pretty pictures to look at in the menu. Maybe that's why the underscores are gone? I memorized the menu "hotkeys" because I couldn't stand looking at and go thru the lengthy and unconsistent menu system. Now I HAVE to look at each line in the menu and it's annoying picture.
