    Yep, the /f goes at the end.

    Visit:

    For some tips etc. But like Maniac says, you will end up prefering a scripting language of your choice and one you feel more comfortable with. For me its AutoIT & good old fashioned batch files. Maniac likes VB [ maybe thats why he is called Maniac.... ;-) ] only joking Mike.....

    Worked for me, did you log off and back on again or re-boot ?
    Also did you work your way into regedit to check that the key was actually deleted ?

    [ Remember it gets re-created after the logon / reboot ]

    Maybe try running it as a logoff script, so the next time a user logs on the key is recreated and the menu order is reset.

    If you could put up a copy I'd be forever grateful, sick of having to re-order it on each machine. Though I have seen on my Vista box that as soon as you add anything to the start menu, it organises it by name. If that is a registry setting then that could probably be applied to great effect in this scenario.

    it's on the previous page.

    I personally don't use this code so I don't know if it works in practice, but it does remove the start menu order registry key which, when tested, re-orders the start menu by name on my home desktop, so there's no reason it shouldn't work.

    Personally I use a mandatory profile for students on the network which has had this registry key removed, so the start menu is always ordered by name by default.

    Mike.
