i never have this problem of windows mess up order - the order for me is order I install (newest install at bottom). However, I can clik and drag any program and release per order I want. It remains in new order.

Just drag the icon up above the line, it`ll stay right where you put it.

Well, you can`t.

They are sorted by use, come on man, how many years have you been using W7 ????

You`ve been on this forum for ages

Just pin the icons you want above the line and uncheck this box.
