  Tired Of Tearing Off Menus In VC++?
  Submitted by

I don't know about you, but since they introduced tear off menu bars in Visual C++, I seemed to tear mine off accidentally all the time, especially when trying to close documents. There is a not so obvious way to keep your menu right where it belongs. Go into Tools\Options\Workspace and check the "Use screen reader compatible menus" check box. You'll now find your menus happily stuck in place (although lacking the pretty pictures, but real programmers don't care about silly icons anyway :-)

FYI - A screen reader is a device used by visually challenged folks to read the screen to them.

The zip file viewer built into the Developer Toolbox made use of the zlib library, as well as the zlibdll source additions.
