Here are some more neat things you can do with those Internet Explorer Favorites…
1. To find out how often you access a particular site, right-click the favorite in question and select Properties .
The Web Document tab should be selected. You’ll see a little ” Visits ” item that shows the number of times you’ve stopped by the site in question.
2. Have you ever clicked a favorite site only to find that you get re-directed to a new page? Well, copy the new URL , right-click the favorite in question, and select Properties . Delete the old URL and paste in the new one. Hit OK and you’re finished.
3. Notice on that same screen you can assign a shortcut key. Just click your mouse in the ” Shortcut key ” box (click the word ” none “) and hit the key you would like to use. Then click OK .
To use your new shortcut key, just hold down CTRL & ALT then press the key you assigned to the favorite. You don’t even need to have Internet Explorer open for this to work.
4. Finally, if you want to see when the last time you accessed a page was, right-click the favorite in question and select Properties from the resulting menu. Click on the General tab to see information on last access, date created, and more. Oh, and you can also re-name your favorite from this screen, too.
Whew, that’s about it. You should be an expert on favorites now!
