Windows 98 Start menu problems... HELP!!!!!
Everytime I install a programm it tells me to restart and I do so, but whenever I try to start the programm it sits at the bootom of my start\programms menu. Isn't windows 98 suppose to alphabetically order the Programms that are being installed new??? What should I do? Should I install Win95 and say screw Win98 ???
Please HELP !!! It is driving me nuts
if you will go to any program in your start/programs menu and right click and go to 'sort by name'....that will put them in order for you
I can't find sort by name. If you mean in the Task Bar/Advanced Tab. I have allready tried that and it won't work.
P.S.: Please help !!!!
I'll take two... CPU's
In Win98, you can drag and drop task bar items anywhere you want, even in the task bar.
I can't be certain but from memory the 'Sort by Name' feature comes with IE5 and not IE4 which ships with Win98.
Hammo is correct the sort menu feature is only in IE5 and is not in IE4. Also, if you use the drag and drop feature to rearrange your menus you disable the automatic sort.
You can get a program (menusnap) from hotfiles at zdtv.com which will sort your menus.
This worked for me: Right click on the Start button and select 'Open'. Go into 'Programs' and set the view property of the window to "List". Then, in that window, do a sort by name. When you close that window and then go through the start menu, they should be in order.
After you install win98 for the 1sst time the startmenu will be in alphabetical order. Whenever you drag and drop something in the start menu the alphabetical order is discarded, what means the order of the items is stored in the registry. Anything installed will be added at the bottom of the list. There is a way around it, by deleting some key in the registry, but i don't know exactly which one. Try one of the FAQ's-sites like
Back again! I saw a freeware program to do the trick for you.
Goto www.winfiles.com and search for "MenuOrder". That will do it.
