Hola experts !

I have a lot of websites under "Favorites" of course I have them classified by subject, sub-folders, etc. but I find the dimensions of the "Favorite" windows very small. Is there any way to expand those small pop-up windows so I can writte more descriptive tittles ? I have Windows XP Professional Pack 3. Thanks in advance, best, Antonio Machado.

In my XP, if you write a longer title (or rename the Favourite) then the window expands in width to suit the title.
Is that what you are after??

If you click the green arrow at the top right of the favorites window (pin favorites) you can expant the window in the usual way (put cursor over right hand side, changes to double arrow, hold left mouse button and drag to suit). This is for IE7.

Mine goes right to the bottom of the screen with scroll arrow to go further down.

Open Favourites, then move the pointer to below the vertical scroll bar. Move the mouse to the right until a double headed arrow appears, then drag the column to whatever width toy want it to be. Does this answer the question?

then whenever you see your "Favorites" it cuts the tittle to fit it in that small space. Please continue helping me. Best, Antonio.

In IE, click 'help' and 'about internet explore'. That will tell you.

You must slowly take the pointer to the right hand side of the favourites column, and it should then appear. It is quite a delicate operation. Once the arrow appears, press down on the mouse button and drag to the right.
