Windows 7: WLM - moving Folders

WLM - moving Folders

Windows Live Mail 2011:

In the left pane is a list of folders - accounts, really. I have many. Sometimes I want to move them up or down in the list. The only way to do this seems to be by right-clicking and clicking Move Up or Move Down. This can take a while if I want to move the one at the top to the bottom position. Isn't there a faster way? Dragging doesn't seem to work.

While I'm here, how about resizing the font of those account folders? I found how to change the colour, but that doesn't help me to see all of my accounts without scrolling. Is it really necessary for the font to be so huge? I can't find how to do this in the Options, but maybe there is something I can change in the Registry?

Thanks!

All my folders are named with my email addresses, so I don't want to upload that sort of info. However, here is a screenshot of a Hotmail page (which sorta resembles WLM) with my editations:
WLM - moving Folders-17-40-cool-features-windows-live-hotmail.png

In the screenshot the Folders (circled) are expanded, but in my usage I keep them all collapsed. I would like to change the font size to that of the sub-folders.

Also in the screenshot I have added the context menu. This appears when right-clicking on any Folder. You can see that to move any folder up or down you must click the Move Up or Move Down option. As I say, I have almost 20 email accounts (yes, that surprises me too), and moving one from any position to another, but especially from top to bottom, can be quite tedious doing it this way. Drag and drop seems to be the obvious solution, but there are no "spaces" between the folders. If you are not hovering over one, you are hovering over the next one. No way to drop anything between them.

Thanks!

I don't know if its possible to re arrange in Hotmail, its usually only one account. In WLM accounts can be arranged how you like.

I don't care about Hotmail. The screenshot is just a sample. I don't use Hotmail enough to care. I know I can move stuff in WLM, I just want to be able to move it more efficiently, rather than one line at a time.

As far as I know, you can have your accounts in any order you like, as to their folders, the order of them is unmovable.

I'm sorry but you're not helping. I have already told you (and shown you via screenshot) that they can be re-ordered. I just want to know if I can do so in a quicker and more efficient way.
Thanks anyway.
