  2. Start menu not in alphabetical order


    Hello,

    I normally organize and rename the shortcuts in the start menu (in the folder ...\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu) to shorter or more memorable names. However, my start menu is not in alphabetical order anymore.

    For example: I've renamed "Adobe Photoshop CC 2015" to "Photoshop" and "Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015" to "Premiere". So, I expect that the programs would be listed under "P" in my start menu, but, they're still on top of my menu, renamed, under the "A" letter.

    This process has always worked, until now. Is there something I can do to fix it?

    Thank you in advance,

    Start menu not in alphabetical order


    Hi, I think the problem is that the Win 10 start menu does not behave in the same way as traditional start menus in respect of legacy folder-based menus we're used to.

    Many of my 'normal' entries in my start menu aren't even present in the Win 10 start menu. Subfolders (E.g. the folder created by a program I install containing its shortcuts) aren't even shown in the Win 10 start menu.. all the shortcuts under one letter in the start menu are linear- extracted from their folders producing this sort of absurdity:

    That's why I use Classic Shell- which works as I expect.

    Is it possible sort the start menu tiles alphabetically?

    Apparently not, the option is so freaking quirky!
    I have to set them in the preferred order manually as well.
    Suggest: create a List folder of your own as per screenshot (left side)
