    Order in Menus and Toolbars

    If I reposition an item in my start menu (or one of the sub-menus) or reposition an icon in a taskbar toolbar, where is the information about the order held?

    I've got good news and bad news for you.

    Good news is, I found where it stores it. Just went off of a hunch (and have played around in the registry WAY too often). It's in HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVe rsionExplorerMenuOrder In that key, there should be Favorites and Start Menu keys.

    Bad News. The Order value in the various sub keys looks half english, half greek, <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>. So good luck trying to play around with them!

    Great, thanks for that.

    Any ideas on the Quick Launch tool bar?

    The 'links' are in Documents And SettingsWhateverAccountApplication DataMicrosoftInternet ExplorerQuick Launch. That's in Windows Explorer, not the registry. But for the life of me, I don't know how it's remembering the sort order, because my links aren't sorted by anything I can see in those shortcut properties. Didn't find anything in the registry either, not saying it's not there, just did a search for Quick, and didn't find anything.
