    What is the best place (aside from my computer hard drive) to store all the following resources all in one place: URL's, word or pdf files, videos.

    I'd like to make a repository of all the different resources I have discovered in one program, website, or place. I don't want to have to go to bookmarks for some, computer files for others, etc.

    The default Documents folder is best. It is how you organize data within that counts.

    Think of it as a Physical filing cabinet with multiple drawers and separators in each drawer and how you store "stuff" in it.

    Logically compartmentalize the data in Folders and Sub-Folders grouped together based upon associations and projects.

    For example:
    * I have a "Taxes Paid" folder. Under that Folder is the Year Folder; 2018, 2017, 2016, etc. In each Year Folder are Excel SpreadSheets, Word Documents, PDFs, URLs and other data files associated with that Year's tax preparations/statements.
    * I have a "Vehicles" folder. Under that is a folder of the named vehicle. In that folder I have Service Recall Notifications, pictures of the vehicle, scanned image of Insurance ID and other related documents. Under that is a Service folder. In that I have the Year; 2018, 2017, 2016, etc. and scanned images of Service Invoices.

    Once you come up with a "filing system" for your data, stick to that system.

    Thank you, but rhe only problem I have with that is saving bookmarks on the fly. They get saved in a browser.......how do I get them in the same place as the files. I'm thinking a hyperlinked document or something.

    You can Drag 'n Drop them into the folder. Also you can Right-Click in the Folder and choose "New" then "Shortcut" Paste the URL and then in the next dialogue, type a description.

    Thanks very much. I'm working with Windows 10 and Firefefox. Is there any way to Drag 'n Drop more than one bookmark at a time?

    Only if they are all in a Bookmark Folder and you use the Bookmark Manager (aka; Library - [ Ctrl+Shift+H ]) and Drag 'n Drop that folder of URLs into the destination Folder.
