[Question] - Start menu reset


rssfed23

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Ive noticed that for some reason my start menu programs section has become de-alphabetilised.

This has happened before and i saw somewhere an app that effictlly "resets" the start menu and then everything goes back to normal.

Does any one have any ideas on how to do this???

Many thanks in advance,

Rob

To do this automated, use a batch containing the following code

start /wait reg delete "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MenuOrder\Start Menu" /f
start /wait reg delete "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MenuOrder\Start Menu2" /f
start /wait taskkill /im explorer.exe /F
start explorer.exe

O.k., I should have pointed out to use this with caution.

Everyone who wants to use this should understand, what these lines mean.

I run this in my unattended installation right after WPI is executed as final step and so there's no problem using this then.

By the way, I searched a while ago for an automated solution for this, but didm't find another one.

Why even do it then? You've probably got a reboot somewhere after WPI which will take care of reloading exlorer.exe anyway. :)
