Hi

Does anyone know how I can sort the menus (e.g. Programs) in the "Start" menu?

Regards,
Brian

Right click on taskbar, in "taskbar and start menu properties" window click on Advanced tab and than Re-sort.
You can also drag and drop individual records on your startup menu

Right click in the area where the programs are listed and then near the bottom of the menu choose "Sort By Name"

Click on "Start" to open the startmenu; then click on the link or folder you want to move, hold the left mouse-button pressed and just drag the item to any place you want.
That way you can sort your items in any way you desire and do not have to rely on a "by name", "by date" or "by whatever-else" sort

A few comments:
- Click and hold with the right instead of the left mouse-button and drag the item to its desired location; after you release the button you will be presented with the option to either copy or move the item or to cancel.
- You can also use this method to copy/move items from the startmenu to either the desktop or the "quick launch bar" (the area right next to the start button on the taskbar, usually holding the "Desktop" icon as well as the Internet Explorer and Outlook Express)

Thanks for the help - all of you. EXCEPT those of you who only know how to copy others answers :-)

Does anyone know why Windows 2000 sorts likes this (when I choose Sort By Name):
  "Bla bla - bla"
  "Bla bla"
Why does it put the longer string before the shorter - it is not the way normal sorting routines work. (I am using the Danish version of Win2000). Is this only the Danish version, or does the US/UK/?? versions have the same bug?

Um English sorts alphabetically. Uppercase letters sort ahead of their lowercase eguala. In other words if "A" will sort ahead of "A". As far as the the lenght of the string I haven't noticed anything unusual..
