    In XP right click on an open area of the desktop and choose properties. Goto the "appearance" tab you will see a selection for Style - win classic or XP look

    Fred,

    Are you asking how to set the application itself to have an XP look? If so, you cannot do this as far as I know - The appearance of the application depends on how you set up Windows, as explained by Marc above.

    I guess what I want is to change the menu style from Classic to Modern. Cant remember how to do it.

    Mark, I finally got my app to have that Windows Xp look about it. My new Dell with XP Pro arrived today. You know! It realy does have that fresh XP look.
