Windows 10: Apps Menu Sorting

    Apps Menu Sorting

    I decided to create a folder in the apps menu for all of my games. I moved all of my game shortcuts from my desktop into the new Games folder I discovered that if there was already an entry for a game in another folder that the new entry would not be displayed. This is not just be title but by the target of the shortcut.

    That's all well and good but now I'm puzzled by the order in which the entries are displayed. I would have thought that they would be sorted alphabetically but they are not. Notice that "Crysis 1" is between "Origin" and "Steam."

    Any thoughts on how to make the system sort them by name?

    Yeah, Crysis1 seems to be an oddball. There must be something else to it. Maybe you want to have a closer look. Else everything seems OK.

    Hi whs. I tried appending an "A" in front of it, I tried changing the name to XXXX; all with no change in the order. Hmmm, very strange. Maybe I'll see if I can find where this list is kept in the registry. Lets hope some else has an idea.
