Thanks for your reply. I am still using IE6, but the local library have IE7 and I could not resize the width of the favorites box. Before I download IE7 I wanted to know whether it could be resized. Ideally I would like someone with IE7 to confirm whether it can be resized? Thanks David
Yes, it can be done in IE7. Use the star to lower the favorites menu (or Alt+C) and then click the arrow (at the top right) to "pin the favorites center". You can then (as provider 2 says above) move your cursor to the right-hand edge and (using the double headed arrows) reduce the width up to the minimum required.
