By default, Windows drop-down menus are aligned to the left, with this tip you can change the default behaviour to make all drop-down aligned to the right instead.
Open your registry and find the key below.
Create a new string value named 'MenuDropAlignment', or modify the existing value to equal '1' for right alignment or '0' for left alignment.
Restart or Log Off your PC for the changes to take affect.

Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
Value Name: MenuDropAlignment
Data Type: REG_SZ
Data: (0 = Left, 1 = Right)
