    On my taskbar I have several toolbar groups. For example "multimedia", "drives", etc.
    In the taskbar I have for the toolbar groups only the "show title" turned on and the tool groups (folders) tightly together. When I click on the little double arrow I get a vertical menu showing whatever the folder contains; files, folders, shortcuts etc.

    It used to be that I could arranging the order of the menu and it would retain it.
    Now suddenly it does not save it anymore and next time I reboot it has rearranged itself again to some sort of default order. So far I have been unable to find an answer on the Internet or in the GPedit.

    In the first image you can see the toolbar folder "drives" menu arranged in the order I would like it. It used to retain the order no matter which toolbar menu and upon reboot remained unchanged.
    Now as shown in second image, upon reboot it rearranges itself to a default and has not retained the previous order.

    Locking the taskbar makes no difference and looks worse because a sliver of the icons show.

    On my recently purchased laptop this works. I spent some time comparing registry entries that I would think are relevant but could not find any difference.

    Using RegShot will allow you to compare before & after states of your Registry so you can identify any Registry key involved.
    regshot download SourceForge.net

    Do note that some Registry keys are not 'reversible'. For example, changing indexed folders through the UI changes entries in a Registry key but changing that Registry key does not change the indexed folders.

    Best of luck,

    About "Locking the taskbar makes no difference and looks worse because a sliver of the icons show." -

    I avoid the icons showing up in the name [even though I lock the Taskbar]. See my post Add Toolbars to Taskbar in Windows 10

    Re-name the shortcuts alpha-numerically in the order you desire.

    I told you how you could find out the answer for yourself.

    Do post back afterwards for the benefit of others.
