Not to sound like a killjoy or discourage you (I know nothing about .net) but did you try google?
This is what you are looking for?
The fox was probably right - they could have been sour grapes.
Me.MenuStrip.Enabled = True 'for all items
Me.MenuStrip.Items(0).Enabled = True 'for 1st item
Me.MenuStrip.Items(1).Enabled = True 'for 2nd item
Me.MenuStrip.Items(2).Enabled = True 'for 3rd item

if its a sub menu that you want to hide items from, based on some current criteria, you can subscribe to the Popup event of the parent menu (or submenu) item, and set the visible (or enabled) property of the relevant sub menu item(s)
Just before a MenuItem is shown, the Popup event is fired to give you time to decide whether to show, check, or change the appearance of a menu item
