Windows 10: Is it possible sort the start menu tiles alphabetically?

    Is it possible sort the start menu tiles alphabetically?


    This has been a long standing issue for me in Windows 10 so I am wondering if there is a trick or some 3rd party program that will allow you to sort a section of tiles alphabetically like you would do with a folder in explorer. For example, I have a tile folder called Games with a bunch of pinned tiles inside but every time I add a new one I then need to rearrange them all one by one to get them all back into alphabetical order. Any help or info would be appreciated.

    Apparently not, the option is so freaking quirky!
    I have to set them in the preferred order manually as well.
    Suggest: create a List folder of your own as per screenshot (left side)

    Thanks as I was hoping maybe after 2 years there would be some way to make the pinned tile icons on the right be able to be alphabetized especially now that you can stack them onto each other and make folders of tiles so for something like Games you may have a lot of tiles there (or at least I do). It is so surprising that this is still beyond something Microsoft can figure out how to do.
