In Windows XP, there is an option (maybe in display effects? I don't remember at the moment) to hide underlines in menus. This allows you to see the underlined characters in the application menus all the time. The default is hiding the underlines. This means you cannot see which character is underlined in the menu until you press Alt (Firefox excepted).

Is there an option for this in Windows 7?
