Re-arrange all programs list

  TimCDC 13:47 17 May 2003

A basic query - but I can't find the answer to this anywhere! Can anyone out there advise me how to rearrange the structure of my all programs list in the start menu - its filling up with loads of similar programmes, and, for example, I'd like to be able to put all the games in a separate "games" submenu, all the image processors in an "image processors" menu etc.
Surely this is possible?
Thanks, Tim

If you right click on the start button, then on open, click the programs icon. You can make folders move the files to the ones of your choice & delete the ones you don't want, after you have finished just exit, it should be possible to drag the folders in the start menu to the position top to bottom as you desire.

Find the folder which contains the list in the start menu. My XP is at C:\Docs & SEttings\Allusers\Start Menu\Programs

Once there you can create new folders to your hearts content and then drag shortcuts to the appropriate folder.

The routine is similar with other windows variants. Using the Search routine is another way to locate the folder
