"RIGHT_HANDED
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows]
"MenuDropAlignment"="1"."

No need to create the key now, just have to set to 0 or 1....

Hello NoN,

That's very good to hear. Thank you for the update. I have added a note in the tutorial for this.

I signed up just to say thanks for this fix!
I've never had any problems with this, my menus always opened to the right, but they wouldn't on my new Windows 8 machine! Your .reg didn't work, but manually creating MenuDropAlignment and setting it to 0 did. Now they open to the right

Hello PiR4TE, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You're welcome. I'm happy to hear that it helped. The .reg file deleted MenuDropAlignment instead of setting it to 0.
