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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
