    "marker" type of menu


    how can I make with win32 api this kind of "tab menu"?

    I mean, look at where it says "taskbar" and "start menu", there is like a marker separating both.

    How can i get that menu format?

    You can do it with tabs:

    A tab control is analogous to the dividers in a notebook or the labels in a file cabinet. By using a tab control, an application can define 
    multiple pages for the same area of a window or dialog box. Each page consists of a set of information or a group of controls that the application 
    displays when the user selects the corresponding tab. A special type of tab control displays tabs that look like buttons. Clicking a button should 
    immediately perform a command instead of displaying a page.
    Or with property sheets:

    A property sheet is a window that allows the user to view and edit the properties of an item. For example, a spreadsheet application can use a property sheet to allow the user to set the font and border properties of a cell or to view and set the properties of a device, such as a disk drive, printer, or mouse.
    (both descriptions are from win32 api programming reference).

    Hope that helps
