yes, use the arrow keys, lol

seriously though, in your ~/.icewm/preferences file, change MenuMouseTracking from 0 to 1

there are lots of things you can change in your ~/.icewm/ directory and all the files are pretty well commented, much easier than all those gui settings programs.

I browsed the preference file before asking,
but I did not carefull enough to catch that line.
I guess it was because of 'lot-of-things'

Thanks again.
