I am using the following code to add my menu item to the system menu(The menu you get when you right click on application icon on the task bar):

invoke GetSystemMenu,[hwnd],FALSE
push eax
invoke InsertMenu,eax,0,MF_BYPOSITION+MF_SEPARATOR,0,0
pop eax
invoke InsertMenu,eax,0,MF_BYPOSITION,IDM_FONT,"Choose &Font"

When I call this functions in C++, it underscores the F so that you can use it as a hotkey. The hot key functions and selects the option when I hit F, but it isn't underscored.

Anybody know why this might be the case?

I think the reason may be that you haven't used the function TranslateAccelerators() in your message loop. So the hot key could not be
translated to WM_COMMAND message .

Other option would be to check if your Windows settings are still the same. Some versions have an option sth. like this:
"Underline hotkeys when I hit Alt"
If you have noticed that pushing Alt+F in a window, the underscores just appear AFTER you have hit the Alt key.
