Does anyone know how to programmatically resort the Start->Programs Menu ?

Thanks,

Bryan

Doesn't it always go in alphabetic order?

Usually, but if you install apps it doesn't resort. They get placed at the bottom of the menu. I seem to remember an issue that can be corrected in the registry for the programs menu.

Oh right I've seen that on XP but it refreshed and resorted after a little bit for me.

On systems with Active Desktop (I think it is), the order of icons is controlled with data under a MenuOrder registry key; please see this Microsoft Knowledge Base article: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;177482.
