I keep my favorite places on AOL. I have hundreds and they were getting out of control, contacted AOL and they said the only way was to drag and drop, that would take me weeks to do that; anybody have a better idea? :)

Well, I don't use AOL, but can you highlight the link?

Try this as a test,

Click on the first favorite you want to move.
Next, hold down the Ctrl Key
Click on the next favorited link

This should keep both highlighted. Then,

Right click on any of the highlighted selections you just made.
Select Cut
Open the folder you want to put them in
Right click on the open space in the folder
Select Paste.

Also, you should have an option somewhere in there to create a new folder. Hold your mouse over the different buttons and see if it says "create new folder" or something along those lines. Or you can try right clicking on the Main header for the favorties folder probably labeled as "My Favorites" and select "New Folder". Then you could have several folders categorized, like Fun Sites, Games, Work, Tech Stuff, etc.

If you have several favorites sites that are listed in a row then do this,

Click on the first favorite you want to move.
Next, hold down the Ctrl Key and the Shift Key at the same time
Click on the LAST favorited link in the row of links

This should keep everything highlighted in between the first one you clicked and the last link you click. Then,

Right click on any of the highlighted selections you just made.
Select Cut
Open the folder you want to put them in
Right click on the open space in the folder
Select Paste.

Try this out. This is probably the fastest way to do it. Even this would take a while since you have so many favorites. That is the only suggestion I have for you.

Good Luck, let me know how it goes!
