Sorting Favourites

  ukhomerj2003 11:54 05 Feb 2006

I have amassed a large amount of favourite links for websites, using the Favourtites function on internet browser.
It is becoming increasingly difficult to fnd some as they need to be sorted.
The problem is that when i view the Favourites folder on my shared file, they are sorted correclty, yet there is no facility on the browsr to sort the favourites, they do not correspond to the sorted files on the shared folder.

How do i sort them please.

I am usng Win XP Home.

You can sort them in alphabetical order buy right clicking one and selecting sort by name. For more advanced sorting, click organise favourites, you then can create folders for related subjects and drag your favourites into them

The sort by name feature does not display when i right click on a link in the favourites menu.

Are you using the favourites menu from the toolbar or from the list on the left hand side?

Left hand side

click on the favourites menu at the top of the browser, this will give a big list of your favourites, right click any one of these and you should see the sort by name

You might want ot try a repair of Internet explorer click here

It might be wise to save your favourites as a dile before you do this.

To do this, click file > import and export > export favourites
