You can, however, change a setting in the Control Panel so that the underlines are always visible.

In Control Panel, click on Ease of Access.  (Instructions below apply to Windows 8).



Click on Ease of Access Center.



Click on the Make the keyboard easier to use option.



Enable the option Underline keyboard shortcuts and access keys.



The underlines indicating access keys will now be displayed immediately when you start your application.
