    Old skool style:-
    Code:
    //If there are complaints about these, uncomment
    /*#define ID_APP_ABOUT	0xE140
    #define ID_APP_EXIT	0xE141*/
    
    HMENU menuMain, menuFile, menuMenu1, menuHelp;
    
    menuMain = CreateMenu();
    SetMenu(hwnd, menuMain);
    menuFile = CreatePopupMenu();
    AppendMenu(menuFile, MF_STRING, ID_APP_EXIT, "E&xit");
    menuMenu1 = CreatePopupMenu();
    menuHelp = CreatePopupMenu();
    AppendMenu(menuHelp, MF_STRING, ID_APP_ABOUT, "&About");
    AppendMenu(menuMain, MF_POPUP | MF_STRING, (unsigned int)menuFile, "&Game");
    AppendMenu(menuMain, MF_POPUP | MF_STRING, (unsigned int)menuMenu1, "&Menu1");
    AppendMenu(menuMain, MF_POPUP | MF_STRING, (unsigned int)menuHelp, "&Help");
    Stick in your WM_CREATE handler or before you show your window.
