Even though Windows Vista is out, there are still plenty of people using Windows XP.  One thing I notice when I sit down at other people’s computers is how disorganized their Start menu is.

As you install new programs, new folders get added to the Start menu, and they got placed all over the board, with no real order to them.  In this first part we’re just going to show you the simpliest thing you can do which is just dragging the folders to some place else, hopefully addind some order to your programs.

start menu 1

The first thing you want to do is just click once on the folder you wish to move with your left mouse button.  This will turn the selected item blue.

start menu 2

You will then click on it once more, and while holding down the left mouse button, you want to drag it to the area you want to drop it.  If you are doing this properly you will see a shadow of the folder with it’s name, and a black bar will show up between folders to show you where it would end up when you release the button.

start menu 3

Once you’ve got the black bar where you want it, release the left mouse button and the folder will drop into that spot.  All done!

In part 2 I will be covering how to condense folders.
