Adding a favourite in IE7 or IE8
I've tried both IE7 and IE8 and simply cannot abide either one, primarily because of the exploded favorites folders list each time I tried to add a favorite. Apparently, this "feature" cannot be undone (to get only the list of
primary favorites, as in IE6, where the folder is exploded only if one clicks on it).
Why is it that Microsoft (or someone else, for that matter) can't develop a browser that is fast, secure, and easy to use and customize to user's preferences with respect to apperance and adding/organizing favorites?

Hi Mad Iowaian,
Its very hard to please 1 billion internet users.
Really, all computers become customized to the owners preferences within a short time...
Probably no two computers on the internet are the same.
I quite like the Favorites Bar of IE8.
Click the Add to Favorites Bar icon (on the left hand side of the Favorites Bar...
note the Favorites bar is actually the renamed Links folder from IE6) and the internet shortcut is added directly to the favorites bar....
You will end up with a list of recently bookmarked web sites at the top of your IE Browser.
Since they were recently bookmarked, they are now in a handy position for you to review.
Also as you type into the Address Bar (with address bar autocomplete turned
on) those recently added bookmarks will be offered as a selection in the Address Bar dropdown list.
Once you have finished with a Bookmark on your Favorites Bar, then simply click the Favorites Center icon to open up the Favorites Center, then drag and drop from the Favorites Bar to a Fovorites Folder of your choice.
see this video (by me...
one of my first attempts)
alternatively if you type
in the IE Address Bar and press enter, IE will open a Windows Explorer window at your Favorites folder....
You can then drag and drop from IE to the open Favorites folder.
ditto if you type
A Windows Explorer window will open up at your Favorites Bar folder (previously called the Links folder...
it is still named the Links folder, but appears in the IE Favorites Center as the Favorites Bar folder)
You will find a Tools menu extension for this at
