I'd like to move Posts from it's position (5) in the Dashboard Menu.

I tried to re-register it with only the menu order, but it no longer displays at all.

function reorder_core_post_types() {
    register_post_type( 'post', ['menu_order'=>10] );

add_action( 'init', 'reorder_core_post_types' );

Is it possible to do this?
