    I would've thought System("CLS") would still have worked unless you had things running in paralell. Doesn't it?

    No, I don't mean code to do it. I mean - is there some menu option that I just haven't seen?

    Have you tried the numpad Enter key?

    My best code is written with the delete key.

    First, clrscr isn't standard, and this compiler sure as hell doesn't have it. Second - didn't you read what I said earlier? I don't want to use code. I just want to use some menu option. When your computer illiterate grandma asks how to surf the web, do you explain sockets to her?

    Just did - no luck, but thanks for the suggestion.

    1. Apply mild soap, mild detergent, mineral spirits or naphtha solvents to glass either by spraying or using a clean, grit-free cloth or sponge saturated with cleaning solution. When using solvents, be careful not to damage glazing or insulating unit seals by overgenerous application of solvent. In addition, comply with solvent manufacturer's directions on label for toxicity, handling and flammability warnings.

    2. Wipe the above cleaning solutions on the glass in a circular motion, applying light to moderate pressure. Approximately three to five passes of the effected area may be required to remove the residue.

    3. Rinse the glass surface immediately with a squeegee or clean, lint-free dry cloth, removing the cleaning solution from the glass surface.

    4. If glass residue is still evident, repeat steps 1, 2 and 3.



    sorry, couldn't resist.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    So, I go into the Who's ONline section, and I see that nv is answering my post! "Great! Now, I'll finally have a good answer!", I thought. Then, I read it.

    Actually, yes I do. Works pretty well to get her out of my hair...she just says "thats way beyond me" and walks out of the room
