    Favorites question

    Is there any way to alphabetize my "favorites" list without having to click and drag everything to put it in order?

    in your favorites link on the top toolbar right click and scroll down to sort by name, that should do it.

    Thanks....but I can't get mine to do that. I have right clicked a million places and see no where I can sort by name.

    If it is explorer, when you click your favorites link at the top and it opens the scroll down menu, you should be able to scroll down to any of your favorites names and right click, sort by name should be the next to the last on the bottom. Sorry, I could have explained it better in the first post.

    If I click on favorites on my tool bar, it opens my favorites list on the left hand side of my screen. If I go to that and right click on one of them, my options are to:

    OPEN
    CREATE NEW FOLDER
    PRINT
    MAKE AVAILABLE OFFLINE
    SEND TO
    CUT
    COPY
    DELETE
    RENAME
    PROPERTIES

    Maybe I am not right clicking the right place.

    It sounds like you might have an older version of IE, I think the latest is 6.0, you can tell what version you're running by clicking help & about internet explorer. When I click my faves in either browser (SBC Yahoo or Explorer) it drops down a menu from the top tool bar that shows all of my bookmarks (favorites) and gives the option to sort. Sorry I can't be of more help, it's one of those things, if I could see it i could figure it out.

    Thank you for trying to help! It's quite frustrating. I am using IE 6.0...so not sure what the deal is. I guess my lazy butt will have to put them in order if I want them that way!

    Oh, I go through my phases, I've had to mess with it all so much at work I have all of our computers figured out. The only other thing I can think of, your faves are opening in a seperate folder instead of directly from your top toolbar, mine were doing that on my cp at work but I deleted the extra folder and they popped back where they belong. I wouldn't do it if you have alot of them though, could turn out to be a pain to input them all back in.
