I hope this helps for some of those wanting to create a basic menu.

So what's the question here? If you just wanted to share your code, you could submit it to the 'code snippet' section.

Well, if this program is just for a menu, there are quite a lot of thing that could use improvement. For example:

Sleep(500);
    cout<<"...";
    Sleep(500);
    cout<<"...";
    Sleep(500);
    cout<<"...";
    Sleep(500);
    cout<<"...";
    system("cls");

Why are you trying to slow the program down? Just for the 'looks' of it?

system(" net use G: /del ");

Why?

Using the systemcommand means your program won't be portable anymore, so it is best to avoid it.

Any particular reason why you're using the crappy and outdated dos.h header?

Oh, and not to be rude, but exactly how will this help someone creating a menu system? Other than the fact that it's supposed to look all pretty with those "loading" statements?

oooops I left those in there by accident. Sorry I didnt know about code snippets on this forum as I am new !
