Menu hot-keys don't underline

I've added a MainMenu control to my VB.NET project and typed in various
items such as &File, &Exit, &Help, &About, etc.

The menu works fine, including hot-keys such as <ALT>F for "File", etc, but
the hot-key character doesn't get underlined at run-time. It does however
show as underlined at design time. How can I make the F in File, the H in
Help, and so on to be underlined at run-time as well as design time?

Thanks in advance,

Tom

this is the default behavior in Win 2000, XP, and Server 2003.

to change it, use the Display Control Panel's Effects tab (2000) or the
Effects Button on the Appearance tab (XP, 2003)

Cheers.
