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

  3. 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,

    I thought that was a Windows setting. Under Display Properties, Effects,
    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.
