Windows 7: Reorder start menu

Reorder start menu

hey everybody,

im using my taskbar on the top of the screen, so start menu appears below the taskbar. Is there a way to reorder/reorganize start menu??i think that by default its made to be on to bottom of the screen, becouse when u open it the nearest items are search line and turn off button and the user picture is at the top of the start menu.
what i want is to have it like this even when my taskbar is at the top of the screen. so when i clic on the start menu button the nearest items will be search line and turn off button (not user picture). So in fact i want to mirror the start menu. Is it possible in some way??

thnx for suggestions.

I've been running taskbar at top for as long as I can remember and have never seen where you can flip it around like you want.

Unfortunately, to the best of my knowledge there's no way to achieve what you're after. The Taskbar & Start Menu are graphical elements and can only be changed if you use 3rd party software, but i would seriously advise against that option.

Hello Przzi,

You might see if the free program Vista Start Menu may help. It it pretty customizable.

Hope this helps,

Any way to reorder the context menu for files/folders?
I have several context menu options from various programs (WinRAR, 7zip, VLC, Winamp, etc... ) and I'd like to put them in my own order. The order they are in by default seems arbitrary. Any programs or ways to do this?
