    To create a rudimentary little console menu, you might check out (rely heavily on) the API console functions. Read more about the big old family on MSDN: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de..._functions.asp

    For your arrow keys ::SetConsoleMode
    Making it all pretty ::FillConsoleOutputAttribute

    etc etc.
