Organize favourites by date in IE6?

Hi, unfortunately whilst editing my favo(u)rites in IE6 I have got them all arranged by name instead of by date modified - how they were before and how I want them, with the latest added ones at the bottom and the oldest at the top.

The solution seems simple (to open favourites from C\Docs. and Settings\My Name \ Favourites and then to use Arrange Icons by \ Modified) but when I do this the icons get arranged in the right order in the folder but on the drop down menu in IE they remain in alphabetical order. Is there any way to restore them to how they were and is it possible for such changes made in the favourites folder on the C drive to show up on the IE drop down menu?

Many thanks :whistling:

I don't think it's possible to get them to appear in that order in IE. If you right click the favorites list all you are offered is "Sort by Name", which suggests that once the chronological sort order has been lost through editing or whatever, there's no going back.

:whistling: I see what you mean about the sort by name only option. Thanks anway.

I suppose a lengthy way to restore them would be to sort them by date in the C \ documents and settings ... etc. folder, move them out of that folder and then to open each page starting with the oldest and then re-adding each to favourites so they would appear in the same chronological order on the drop down...

You can drag and drop favourites in Internet Explorer's Favourites menu in the same way you can do it with the Start Menu. Just rearrange them as you want.
