My Documents Icon Sort

  1. If any of you are familiar with the registry tweak that changes the order of the icons on the desktop so that "My Computer" icon is first

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}]
    "SortOrderIndex"=dword:00000054


    I'm trying to do something similar for the My Music, My Pictures, and My Videos folders in My Documents. I have accumulated a great number of folders in My Documents but I access those three probably the most. So when I add new folders I want to be able to arrange icons by any method and have those three listed first followed by the rest listing by what ever method I choose to arrange by. I hope this is specific enough. If anyone has any idea how this can be done, or where in the registry it can be done please let me know. Thanks

    You could rename them to have a number 1 in front of them
    ie "1 My Pictures" That would work
