Sort IE Favorites

Q:
My IE focus [1] on the Windows directory. If you’re using XP, it will put focus on your personal directory (this tip works the same either way)

Next, open the Favorites folder. Now, right-click the right-hand pane and select New, Folder from the resulting menu. Name the folder and hit Enter .

Now just drag & drop the favorites that belong in that folder straight to it. Seems like this would be quicker to me.

3. If you would like to rename one of your favorites, (you know, the one that just says “homepage” or “Untitled document”) to something slightly more descriptive, you can do so from that same Organize Favorites screen we mentioned earlier.

Open up the Organize favorites screen again, select the favorite you would like to rename, and click the ” Rename ” button. If you’re not sure what the favorite is for, when you click it you’ll see that you get a little info in the box on the left, including the URL . If that still doesn’t help, double-click the link and Explorer will open the link for you.
