Too many Favorites, too little time

Question: In very plain language, could you please explain how I sort out all the goodies that I have added to my Internet Explorer Favorites. I want to place them into folders. Please give me some basic help.

Answer: Organising your Favorite pages into folders is a good idea that will save you time and make your Web browsing more efficient. It's also fairly easy to do. First of all, start up Internet Explorer, and choose Favorites-Organize Favorites to open the Organize Favorites dialogue box.

This box displays the Shortcuts to your favourite sites, and lets you create, open, rename and delete folders. It also lets you move your Favorites into folders. To create a new folder, click on the New Folder button, which is the third button from the right at the top of the box. A new folder will appear with a rectangle around its name. Type in a name for the folder and press the key.

There are two ways to move a Favorite into a folder. The first way is to drag and drop it on to the destination folder. Alternatively, you can select the Favorite and click the Move button. In the Browse for Folder dialogue box that appears, simply navigate to the folder that you want to move the Shortcut into and click the OK button.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
