windows 98se p111 600mhz Still have old problem. My list of programs is all over the place, can anyone tell me how to get it into alphabetical order ? I've tried right clicking in a blank space to invoke the Arange Icons menue but nothing happens. The right click works fine when used to arrange the Start menue progs.
In Win 98SE, go to START/Programs and right click on the extended menu then select SORT BY NAME. You can also click on a program name and drag it up and down the list then drop it to suit yourself. Incidentally, I would respectfully suggest that you stick to the same posting instead of starting another one as it only confuses people when they only see a reply and no question or problem.
Select START > All Programs then right click on one of the programmes showing the most common icon. Right Click on the actual icon and then select sort by name. This will arrange all programmes with this common icon into alphabetical order. It will not, however, sort the programmes showing their own special icon.
In my Win 98SE when I go to Start/ click on Programs/ right click anywhere on extended program and then choose "sort by name" it puts all the folders and programs with the black triangle in alphabetical order at the top of the list and those without the black triangle remain at the bottom but still in order. I can also left click on any of the folder/ programs and drag them up and down the list, dropping them where required. If you are not able to do this then either you have a problem or I have been specially blessed by Bill Gates.
