Windows 7: Can't drag items pinned on the start menu to sort them

Can't drag items pinned on the start menu to sort them

On build 7000, I could do this. But now everytime I try to drag a pinned item to move it to the top (I like to keep my stuff alphabetically ordered), it just gives me the option to open it with whatever else I'm holding it over.

Anyone else notice this and/or know a way around this nonsense?

Hello thenext8seconds,

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

I noticed it now. I don't usually try to rearrange the order so never knew that you could do that in 7000. Don't know of any work around. Send Feedback might help.

Hello thenext8second, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The Pinned programs in the Start menu should be ordered by name by default. Now, the Recent Programs will be ordered by when they were last used with the most recent on top. You can right click on the to "Remove from List".

There's no way to change the order for these though.

Sorry,
Shawn
