Resource Editor: How To Edit an Application Menu
A menu resource stores a tree of sub-menus and menu items that define the appearance and function of an application menu. A menu is a specialized input control that lets the user select commands and submenus from a list of menu items.
A menu item has a caption, a menu resource ID, and an optional shortcut.
Menu IDs cannot be edited. These values are hard coded into the EXE file. Changing them is likely to cause the modified program to crash.
1. Expand the 'Menu' folder and select the target menu resource from the Resource Tree View.
2. Press the Resource Editor button to edit this selected menu resource, or simply double-click the resource item directly.
3. Select the menu item from the Menu Tree and make changes to its caption. Menu items can be deleted by erasing their captions.
4. Press OK to close the Resource Editor and select 'File' -> 'Save File As ...' to save the changes you've just made to the target file. If warned that the image size has changed, click "Yes" to update the file size.
There's no way to add new items to a menu in the current version.
There's no way to change Language Id.
