Default Shelves don't stay in order, and I am ready to shoot someone!

Self explanatory title.

I have 4 shelves in Maya, and they all switch to become in order alphabetically whenever I restart the program, and it is VERY frustrating.

I mean, if I wanted them in that order I would do it myself.

Any Ideas?
Thanks.

(Also, I have had this problem before, but not to this extent)

This just recently started happening when I got rid of most shelves in favor of just these 4.

Now here is a pointless screenshot:
(Keep in mind, I want the before picture, not the after one)

Did you manually tell it to save your prefs? File>Save Preferences. I've had Maya act weird with my prefs, like with my grid and such, sometimes they get corrupted it seems.

Ugh, but that takes so much effort! Meh, I'll find another way :p


Thanks though, if all else fails, I will do that.
