Always show menu underline (keyboard accelerators)

Hi :-)
Remember in XP in the display control panel, we could make the menu
underlines (keyboard accelerator strokes, e.g. Alt-F for File menu, etc...)
always visible/showing throughout all Windows' menu system? Where's the
setting now in Vista?

I know pressing the Alt key in most cases will expose the hidden menu
accelerator key underlines but I'd love to have them show up all the time to
speed up keystrokes.

Cheers.

You can turn this on in the new Ease of Access Center (go to Control
Panel, click Ease of Access and then click Ease of Access Center). In
the Ease of Access Center, click Make the keyboard easier to use, and
at the very bottom select the Underline keyboard shortcuts and access
keys check box.
