How can one change the order of the Start Menu?

I have Messages first which is great, then I have Office and Calender on the first line.

I want to change it to Messages, Task Manager, Call Register etc

Is there a way to change the order of the programs in the start menu? Is there a .XML I need to edit or something?

Thanks for the help!

Hi there ;)

I think you can do it on the registry. Try checking this:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Shell\StartMenu\Order

'Order' is a multi-string value. The first entry you see there corresponds to the first shortcut of your Start Menu. Kindly check this screengrab (from WM5 SP Emulator)...

Has anyone gotten this to work with a Dash running WM6? I tried this on my Dash and it didn't work. The whole Start Menu turns blank and you can't do anything. I had to hard reset. The only way I've been able to do this is to first install Jeyo Personalizer. After using that to reorder the Start Menu, I can then go into the registry and make the changes I want. Weird that I have to run Jeyo first but I found that works.

I renamed this key to Order1 on my Blackjack 2 (WM6) and power cycled. The Start Menu now displays in alpha order. You could do this and then manipulate the folder/item names to get the order you want.
