ahh, OK, I see now. Nothing wrong with previous, it works fine, but that little bit of screen movement if i hit a key while reaching for my coffee or donut, then i have to scroll back, etc. so this is just cosmetic, i have an option to show the menu if i need it, I didn't want it popping up every time i pressed a key, so this works ok, no extra screen stuff going on.. never occurred to me I could just remove the mymenu :P oh well, I don't mind looking like an idiot as long as I'm learning something... thanks
