I have a number of urls listed in my favourites folder. In the folder itself (C: documentsandsettings/owner/favourites) they are all listed alphabetically yet when I open internet explorer and open favourites they are not in strict alphabetical order.

How can I change this??

Thanks.

Howdy:

Just right click on any one of the listed favorites and select "Sort by name" !!

Hi,

Thanks, but they are already listed by name in the actual folder but this doesnt seem to translate when I open favourites in IE. I copied the favourites file from my other pc (sams OS)

Which "favorites" are you clicking on?? Not the one in the Taskbar across the top right??

Use the one where the "back"; forward; stop; etc is located..

Click on it to open it.. move the mouse down to highlight any one of them.. right click and "sort by name"..

That's the one I am using. When I open the folder and highlight one and right click there is no option to sort by name.

Going to give myself a slap alongside the head.. :tazz:

Use the one on the very top.. where it says File, Edit, etc.. Click to open.. highlight and right click on a "favorite".. "Sort by name"..
