Windows 7 Start Menu: “Search programs and files”

searchstart-menuwindows 7

In Windows 7, after pressing the Win key, you can type keywords to search for programs. How does Windows 7 determine the order of the search results? Sometimes it seems depends on the frequency you execute the program. Sometimes it just never changes the order.

I wish it could sort by 'most frequently used'. Is there any way to configure this?
