    Is this in Windows Explorer?
    Do Organize-Layout-Menu Bar. That'll give you the old File-Edit etc menu.

    Where 'highlight' means to select any item in the set.

    You still haven't said where. But regardless of what program you are
    talking about, or even what version of Windows you are talking about,
    use Ctrl-A.

    Ctrl + A will select all items in the active window, nothing to do with
    folder options

    Do you have a point?
    Did you read what I replied to?
    Read it again.
    Now don't you think you should butt-out?

    As Trev said, it has nothing to do with folder options.

    Nah, Jack just doesn't know how to post a reply to the correct message
    in the thread.

    You would think.

    In this newsreader (MesNews), if I press Ctrl-A while the message
    window is active, then all the headers in the headers window get
    selected.

    That is, of course, pretty bizarre, IMO.

    Jack is a lot smarter than either of you. Jack replied to: "Do NOT need to
    highlight just get focus in the place you want and then Ctrl A"

    You either have to click somewhere in the window, or you have to have your
    folder options set for "Point to select" to get focus. (Clicking somewhere
    in the window _is_ highlighting it.)
