Hi All

Under start menu in WinXP, you can set to either Classic, or XP's new style.
I prefer the new style, but at a screen res of 1280x1024, I have over 3 pages of shortcuts listed under programs.
My problem is they are not sorted Alphabetically, so its a friggin pain to find anything.

If I change it to Classic, everything gets sorted Alphabetically, when i change back to XP, it all goes chop suey again.

any ideas would be appreciated.

cheers

You could always sort them more logically by hand, that would entail making new folders and dragging the existing shortcuts into them.

On the machine Iím on at the moment I have mine sorted into

MS Office
Business
Games
apps
security

For me that makes them as tidy as possible and easiest to quickly find the program I am after.

My Win XP menu is not the classic option and all I need do is right click somewhere in one of the branches and choose Sort by Name.
