Does anyone know how to alphabitize the Start Menu (All Programs) in Windows 7. It can be done in XP but I can't see how to do it in Win7.?

Right-click on the All Programs section of the menu and go to Properties then click Customize, on the Start Menu tab, and scroll down the list until you see the check box for 'Sort All Programs menu by name'.

The default behaviour for Windows 7 is to sort alphabetically, with Shortcuts above Folders (the opposite to a "normal" folder view). Try un-checking, applying, and re-checking that option... if not, you may have third-party applications (often in the guise of "Cleanup Tools" or other "helpful" programs) that are affecting it.
