Windows 7: Manually arranging Start Menu items

20 Apr 2012   #1

Windows 7 64
Manually arranging Start Menu items

I uncheck the box "Sort all programs menu by name"
(Task Bar properties/Start menu/Customize/Sort all programs menu by name)

After unchecking I can arrange the folders & shortcuts in the Start Menu as I could in WinXP. After rebooting most of my arrangement has reverted.

I have tried this on 4 computers including a brand new clean install (from retail DVD) and all do the same thing!

Anyone have luck with this?
