    My OS is Windows Vista Business.

    When I use the start menu's search box, the search results items (programs,
    files) are always UNDERLINED, but all my programs in the Start Menu are not.

    This is not serious but with the lines, they are not as pleasant looking in
    my eyes.

    I have tried everything I can by digging out all options, start menu, folder
    view, etc and reset them to default but still in vain.

    Anyone can help me in this, especially those Vista experts?

    If I understand correctly, you don't want all your Search Results
    underlined. Go to Control Panel (Classic View) > Folder Options, and, on
    the General tab, under "Click items as follows" choose "Double-click to open
    an item". Or choose "Single-click", with "Underline icon titles only when I
    point at them"). Don't choose "Underline icon titles consistent with my

    I guess something has corrupted my Start Menu options, I chose "Double click
    to open an item" as you said below, but the search results are underlined
    when mouse cursor points at them.

    I guess there is no solution for this.

    No, I don't think it's corruption. I do see what you mean. The underline
    indicates that your next click will open the item, after it's highlighted.
    Since it's an html type list with the possibility of mixed content (program
    shortcuts, documents, URL's, etc.) and not really just a directory list,
    like All Programs (which seems to use single-click "Quick Launch"
    functionality), I don't think this can be changed. The Search Results list
    seems to work similarly to the Favorites Center pane in IE7, in this

    Yes you are absolutely right, after I've read what you said, I disabled the
    underline links option in the Internet Explorer options.

    Then I checked again the search results in the Start Menu, the underlines
    are gone. Thanks for the brilliant idea!
