Sorting and organizing the Start menu or Favorites list either alphabetically or just the way you want it
(Estimated Time: 5-10 minutes approx, Level= Novice User)
The Start Menu contains shortcuts to all the programs that you have installed and the ones that were pre-installed with the Windows Operating System. Over time it isn't always organized the way you might like, and not every program is there. With a couple of easy tips you'll have it working just the way you like it. Let's start by organizing things. Personally I don't like having the Games folder buried under Programs ---> Accessories, I prefer it right off of Programs. You might also find, that after installing something (MS Office seems to do it) that new items won't be added alphabetically anymore, they just drop to the bottom of the Start Menu.
Well, organizing things your way is as easy as clicking and dragging. Just drag the item you want to move using the left mouse button. A little black bar will appear where the item will be moved to. This allows any organization whatsoever, but if you prefer things be alphabetized, right click on the menu and choose Sort by Name as shown in the figure below. This applies only menu-by-menu, so if you do this in the Accessories folder, only it is affected, not the parent Programs folder nor any of the subfolders.
Some programs won't always be listed on the Start Menu either. You can make new shortcuts to programs; documents; audio...any file in fact. If you right-click on the Start Menu and select Explore you can then choose to Add... or Remove... files. The Advanced... button brings up an Explorer view and lets you work with the Start Menu as the set of Folders and Shortcuts that it really is, but for the most part you probably don't need to use this unless you're adding or removing a whole bunch of things. You can also move items around in this view just like any other files on your disks.
For sorting the Favorites do as shown in the figure.
