Windows 7: I'd like to change how auto arrange works.

I'd like to change how auto arrange works.

Instead of auto arrange putting all of my icons on my desktop on the left, i want it to arrange them on the right. Is there a registry key that controls how auto-arrange works so that i can change it to arrange all of the icons on the right? how would i go about doing this?
