Easy one today ;-)
If I Start > Settings > Control Panel, the next menu is not in alphabetical order! Just wondered why this should be.
It's possible to re-arrange the Programs menu via Start Menu properties - is it possible to re-arrange the Control Panel menu somewhere?
If I open Control Panel via My Computer, all the folders there are arranged alphabetically ?

might you be able to right click as in programs and alter by name?

Hi wotbus@

My suggestion would be to right click on an item within the menu while it is open and you should have the option to "Sort by Name". That's certainly the case for the start menu (try right clicking on an item within your "All Programs" menu); but I can't be 100% sure for control panel as I don't have that option on.

Best regards

Thanks moore_mat, that did it. TVM.
I didn't get that far when trying as when I moved from the Control Panel to the Control Panel menu, moving the cursor up/down just highlighted a particular application and (wrongly) assumed whatever I did then would apply to that particular application.
