Re: new ie

There are all sorts of ways to do it now..... not sure what you want to

press Alt + Z then a box opens up select Organize Favorites and you
can do it 
that way.

open Favorites and right click on a blank spot and then
By Name. This puts everything alphabetically in either program

Click the star.  Right click a favorite.  Select Sort by Name.
Adding a favorite:
Click the start with a plus sign (right next to the plain
star).  Select Add 
to Favorites.

Add a new folder to Favorites:
As above and
then click New Folder.

and I also read about having to do this.... take it
with a grain of salt please!... I haven't tried it yet.

Problem: When you
sort or organize your Favorites list in IE7 either by using 
the pull down
listing of the browser or going to "Organize Favorites", and 
later try to use
"Add to Favorites" or "Export Favorites" they will not have 
your current
organization of files and folders. [For explanation see Bug ID 
245932 at
45932 ].

Though MS should correct the IE7 code and make a hotfix for all
through MSUpdates, I'm not holding my breath and therefore made the
workaround that you can do so Add and Export Favorites will see
Favorites the way that you have them set up and see them:

1. Make sure
that your IE7 Favorites listing appears the way you want it 
when you click
Favorites (don't worry about how it appears in Add or 
Organize). If you want
everything alphanumerically ordered then right click 
on any part of the
Favorites List and  then left click on "sort by name".
2. Exit IE7 (and other
3. Use windows explorer to save your Favorities folder at
"[Drive:]\Documents and Settings\[User]\Favorites" to a CD or other media and
if it asks you if you want to copy a system file such as Desktop.ini or
Thumbs.db just say No.
4. Delete all of the contents of your Favorites folder
at location 
"[Drive:]\Documents and Settings\[User]\Favorites" (Keep the
folder but delete everything in it (including desktop.ini and
5. Reboot
6. Copy the entire Favorites folder from your CD
to [Drive:]\Documents and 
Settings\[User]\ . It will ask if you want to
overwrite the old favorites 
folder to which you say YES.
7. Open IE7 and then
click Favorites and make sure that the favorites are 
there (don't worry if
they are out of order). 
8. Reboot.
9. Open IE7 and make sure the files are in
order and then save your 
Favorites by going to File > Import and Export" and
export your favorites to 
a file for safe keeping.

The reason this works is
that your Document & Settings Favorites folder is 
not HTML based (so the
ADD_DATE issue is not a problem) but rather DOS folder 
based and it is saved
with the same organization of Favorites that you see on 
your IE7 browser. So
all one has to do is save it, delete it (to erase the 
current HTML based list
that is faulty in the IE7 browser), and then copy it 
back. IE7 then sees the
correctly ordered folders/files and converts them 
into an HTML list for its
Favorites. The reboots are needed to reset the

leaving her computer on IE 6 for awhile....just wait till you try Office
