Is there a registry fix so my Start Menu programs, as well as the Accessories and System Tools are NOT sorted alphabetically? All I see are the registry edits to sort everything alphabetically but I want the exact opposite.

I used to have everything in a particular order but now it is sorting everything alphabetically and I can't seem to get it back to the way it was.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

I believe CCleaner has some options where you can clear out your start menu and then it randomly comes back in the order you open it in. If you are interested in this, tell me :)

Actually if someone has this registry key where the entertainment folder is NOT sorted alphabetically if you can send it to me that would more than likely solve the problem.

This is the key I need-I actually need the "order" information which is in hex form that comprises this key:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MenuOrder\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\Entertainment]

The order hex determines the sort. If you happen to have the hex key for this folder that is NOT sorted then I think that would solve the problem.

At least I think it might.

If not I will check out CCleaner and see how that works!

Thank you!
