Windows 7: Reverse Order of Taskbar Right click Items

Reverse Order of Taskbar Right click Items

Hey guys,

I was wondering if there was a way for me to reverse the order of the menu items that pop up when you right click an icon / active program in the taskbar. The reason I ask this is because I put my taskbar at the top of the window (where everything else is, browser navigation, folder address/navigation, just makes sense to me), but when I right click on an icon, the persistent actions pop up immediately, and if I go to click on one (like "close this window") then the recent or pinned items expand after a second or so, causing me to misclick.

The right-click menu is designed perfectly for a taskbar on the bottom, but it's backwards up top. Any way to get them reversed? Not technically reversed I guess, but just get the persistent items to be at the top.

Order of taskbar items
In my Win7 taskbar the items represent programs that I use and also messages from my email client. Is it possible to keep the order of these items constant (e.g. browser followed by email client followed by messages)?

Win Explorer Reverse Alpha Order of Document Folders
When I go into Explorer to look at or open a Document Folder, my folders appear in reverse alpha order (Z-A). Is there a way to change this so that my folders appear in alpha order (A-Z). This is extremely annoying and I really would appreciate help with this.
Reverse page print order?
Hi, I often print dozens of pages at a time and it's really frustrating to get them in a reverse order. I know I can just put in the print settings (if I had 50 pages to print) pages 50-1 to print instead of 1-50 to get a correct order, but how can I make this automatic? Thanks
