Default How to organize Start/Programs menu?

In Windows XP Pro, when I go to my start menu and go to Programs, it seems everything is sort of scattered around. All the folders are in random places, and the single programs are just scattered. How can I organize this so all folders are at the top, and all single programs are at the bottom? thanks

If you right click on the menu there should be an option to sort by name. This will sort the list with folders on top and single programs on the bottom and then alphabetize them.

In addition to dragging and dropping, you can also navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\*username*\Start Menu\Programs to manually organize your start menu. You will need to replace *username* with the username of your account and you might also have to modify the \All Users\Start Menu\Programs folder as well. This is useful if you want to add your own folders etc. to the start menu.
