(BUG) Can't rearrange Start Menu items!

Recommended Posts

In Windows 7 Beta 7000 and 7022 you can not change the order of the programs on the Start Menu.

Is this a Bug?

In Windows Vista you can rearrange them.

I am not talking about the All Programs but the Start Menu at the top.

I noticed that too. The only workaround I've found so far is to unpin them all and then pin them in the order you want them to appear.

W7 - 7000 - x64

I should add that I'm running 7022. I seem to recall it worked okay in 7000.

Thats sure is very odd when I try and move them its just says "+ open with program"

Are you sure you don't mean the All Programs menu?

Maybe its just a bug in the 32Bit version.

Yes it work well.

BTW I noticed that some registry tweaks (like removing arrows from icon links) can block the start menu object.

Nope. I'm talking about Start Menu object. Take a look at the screenshot.

Well then this is most certainly a bug in 32Bit version. Because I can not do that.

I sent a bug report to Microsoft.

I'm running 7048 x64 and I still have the same issue.

Interestingly, if you drag a shortcut into the start menu from your desktop (or a window) you can place it where you like but once there you can't move it to another position.

This bug is now fixed in Windows 7 Build 7057 :)
