the 'shading' menu is specific to a panel, so you'll find it at the top of each view panel (not at the top of the window itself, but below the shelf at the top of your view pane)

alternatively, you can hit the 4, 5, 6, and 7 keys on your keyboard to toggle between wireframe, shaded, textured, and lighted modes

Aaahhhh perfect will try that when I get home thanks

also do you know any total novice tutorials on the net as I'm following a tutorial at the moment on how to build a medieval castle I was after more especialy ones that explain each step in depth.

Tutorials in modelling and animation are the ideal ones I'm after.

start with the ones that show up on start up and then move to the ones that are in the help menu

they are relevant to the version of maya you're using and you'll have answers to questions you're going to ask in future if you don't do them (like the classic "where is the modelling menu set?")
