Favourites alphabetical listing

  Tic Tac Man 06:52 24 Mar 2003

When I add a new folder to my favourites, it joins the end of the list. I'd like to put them in alphabetical order. I thought this would be quite easy. I went to organise favourites but can't seem to do it. Am I missing something? Can anyone help please?

Right-click on your favourites list, and choose Sort by Name

This is an old chestnut. You have to use Favs at the top of the screen not on the left pane.

You also have to refresh the left pane if Favs is showing there.

What left pane? My favorites appear at the top of the screen, nowhere else. Am I missing something?

Control I will toggle the favourites list. Or from the View Menu, Explorer Bar, Favourites.

F4 will do the same in Opera.

Got what I was looking for, first time, thanks to your directions. I seem to have raised another question about favourites in the left pane, which I don't know about either.

Right-clicking in 98 + ie6 on favorites won't give the option to 'sort by name'. You have to click and drag each entry to where you want.

Hi there. If you look at the tool bar which contains the back and forward buttons, further along to the right is another favourites button. If you click this the left hand pane will open up.

Got that now, too, thanks Pesala.

Got it - do you know, I've never used that or even noticed it!!

I've got 98 + ie6 and it worked for me. Click Favorites at the top, go into the body of the list, then right click and it should do it for you. I also tried the toolbar favorites to get the left pane. Thanks for all your help.
