Pop-ups going to the left side?

Hi,

Yesterday after installing a whole lot of updates my pop-up screen (e.g. when you click the left mouse button on your desktop) no go the left instead of the right from the cursors point of view. See image for example.

Who can help me with this slightly annoying problem?

Thanks in advance,
Hugo.

Here you go. The 2nd tutorial was written for Vista, but works in Windows 7. It's also a lot easier than the 1st.

By the way, if there's not enough room for the pop-up to open on the set side, it will still open on the other side. So, when that happens, it doesn't mean that the setting isn't working.

Is there such a trick or hack to change its position from the right to left side on the task or quick launch bar? Since the standards have always been left to right, you'd think such a feature would be the same for convenience :rolleyes:
