<...comments about MenuSpy.exe...>
If you'd just like to understand how $menuPath works, I'll try and
explain briefly.... Notepad for example has an 'Edit' menu option
and underneath it there are several items, including 'Find'. Now,
the menu items are usually not what they appear to be as you need to
take into consideration the shortcut key part; which is usually
marked with an underline. If you don't see the underline, hold down
the Alt key when accessing the menu and you will see them
appear.... For 'Edit' you will notice an underline under the first
character, so that part will become '&Edit', and for 'Find' it is
the first character too, so the $menuPath for Edit\Find will
be '&Edit|&Find'. As you can tell, the character that has the
underline will be preceeded with a '&' in the menupath.
I hope this made sense and has helped.
