|Change the Alignment of Drop-Down Menus (All Windows)|
Category: Home > Windows > Appearance > Effects and Menus
By default, Windows drop-down menus are aligned to the left, with this tweak you can change the default behavior to align the menus to the right instead.
Open your registry and find the key below.
Create a new string value, or modify the existing value, named 'MenuDropAlignment' and set it to equal '1' for right alignment or '0' for left alignment.
Restart or logoff Windows for the changes to take effect.
