January 31 2000 -- Set Your Start Menu Straight!

Have you ever noticed your Start Menu after installing a new program?  The newly installed application is now on the bottom of the list.  You would expect that the programs automagically alphabetize themselves...but NO!  Well, Microsoft Windows* 98 users have a reprieve from this frustration.

  • Click on the Start Button.
  • Click on Programs.
  • Right-click over any of the programs listed.
  • Select Sort by Name from the right-click menu.
    See Figure A.
  • Done -- you're listed programs are new sorted alphabetically,
    first by folder then by individual icons.
