        I read they wanted to alter the RIBBON and came up empty.

        Thank you for taking an interest in replying. I know al that is mentioned in the article. I was referring to the options you can see in the RIBBON.
        When you highlight a file and click “Move to”, you see a drop-down list with the most recent folders you use. I want that list to alwasy be alphabetically ordered.

      I have yet to see any such customization of Windows 10 File Explorer.

          Windows is CLOSED SOURCE.

          So while you were not looking for the answer given (it’s no), I didn’t want to leave you without options.

          The article I noted is about the RIBBON. Tom offered a fix for the drop-down which is a great find and a step towards getting another area in the order you wanted.

          But alas, Windows File Explore is not always configurable and with Microsoft putting it’s engineers and staff on the Windows 11 train I do not expect any change here.

          As such, your best option is to replace Windows File Explorer.

      “Move to”
      To add “Move to” to the context menu, the first thing you have to do is open the Registry Editor. To do so,
      – Press Windows+R, type “regedit” in the text box, and then press Enter.
      – Type “regedit” in the text box.T
      – Navigate to the following key in the left sidebar or you can paste it directly
      into the address bar:
      HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers
      – Once you’re there, right-click “ContextMenuHandlers,” and then select
      New > Key from the pop-up menu.
      – Right-click “ContextMenuHandlers,” click “New,” and then click “Key.”
      – Name the new key “Move to,” and then press Enter.
      – Now, double-click “(Default),” paste the following string into the “Value
      Data” field, and then press Enter:-
      {C2FBB631-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}
      – You can now safely close the Registry Editor. You don’t have to restart or
      sign out to start using this functionality.

      “Copy to”
      The same as before, to add “Copy to” to the context menu, you first open the Registry Editor.
      – Press Windows+R, type “regedit” in the text box, and then press Enter.
      “Regedit” in the text box of the “Run” window.
      – Navigate to the following key in the left sidebar or paste it directly into the
      address bar:
      HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers
      – Once you’re here, right-click “ContextMenuHandlers” and select New >
      Key from the pop-up menu.
      – Right-click “ContextMenuHandlers,” click “New,” and then click “Key.”
      – Name the new key “Copy to” and press Enter.
      – Now, double-click “(Default),” paste the following string into the “Value
      data” field, and then press Enter:
      {C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}
      – When you’re finished, you can safely close Registry Editor. Again, you don’t
      have to restart or sign out to start using this functionality.

      After you add these tweaks to the Windows registry and you right-click a file or folder, the context menu appears as usual, but it will now also contain the “Move to” and/or “Copy to” options.

        The question remains -> How to change the RIBBON.

        So far the RIBBON doesn’t look to be customizable.
