Organizing "All Programs"

Is there any way to display the items under "All Programs" alphabetically while using the XP Start Menu? My list of programs is quite long as it is not as easy to create subfolders in XP during program installation as previous versions (or Mac). It seems that the order displayed is either by frequency of use or chronologically per installation date and with a long list, I could navigate easier if things were simply alphabetical. Thanks.

Right click on an item in the list and click "sort by name" That should do the trick
