    Start menu order

    The start menu seems to be in either random order or order of creation, I'm not sure which. How can I alter the order that folders (and items within folders) list in the start menu?

    Click on one of the items and drag it up or down with the mouse to where ever on the menu you want it to go.

    Alternatively, right click the mouse and the menu will show an item called "Sort by Name".

    Re: Start menu order

    I was wondering about the sort order as well (saw your post from Jan 01). Is there some way to set the sort order as "sort by name" by default on the Start Button? I think that everytime I make a change, I'll have to right-click and re-sort (I have to do this with Win ME at home, although there is a re-sort button on the menu options for task bar items). Thx. -Rich.

    I can't find this in my Win98. Where abouts ought I be clicking?

    Also, from Windows Explorer, dragging the items has no effect.

    At times I can be blind to the obvious, so I hope you can shed some light. Thanks.

    (5 seconds later ...) duh! I right-click in the START menu itself. I had been esaying in Explorer.

    Thanks for your previous posting!

    Should be at the bottom of the context menu, one up from Properties.

    Thanks Ian. That's a much better phrasing than mine. (I found the darn thing 5 secodns after posting my inquiry)
