Is there a way to sort by name, the items in "All Programmes" accessed from the "Start Menu"?

Cheers.

Hi, right-click on any item and then on Sort by Name

Cheers for your reply but is there a way to get them all sorted at the same time, instead of having to go through each one individually?

if you choose any program and follow the above advice they will all be sorted in to alphabetical order in one go

Yes but they don't all seem to sort in the correct order ...only some of them.

Folders are sorted first, followed by individual programmes.

Got it! Sorry for my stupidity.

Right-clicking on any item and choosing sort by name should always do just that, folders first and then individual shortcuts.

Hi again - not stupid at all, no need to apologise, we all had to learn too you know.
Well, now you know too... :-))

You can do Sort by Name for Favorites, Bookmarks and even the Start Menu if you wish; right clicking on the Start Menu button also brings up a menu...:-)
