I use IE5.5 with Win98SE. I find the "Links" bar very handy for quick access to my most frequently used Favorites. I like to have all my "Links" visible, so I don't have to click the >> continuation symbol. Since I've assigned a permanent icon to each such link, I don't need to see their names, and not seeing the names would enable me to squeeze in many more links.

Is there any way of hiding the names of these Links?

Seriously,
the only thing i can think of is making up a one letter or symbol for the page because IE has to have some kind of name (symbol) for the link

Expanding on what thejay said.

Choose Favorites, Organize Favorites. When the Organize Favorites window opens, locate the URL to which you want to assign keys and right-click it. Choose Properties and then click the Internet Shortcut tab when the dialog box opens. Click in the entry box labeled Shortcut Key. Type in the letter you'd like to use as your keystroke.
Note that you need only enter the letter of choice--the program will complete the keystrokes by adding Ctrl-Alt. So, if you type A, the entry will become Ctrl-Alt-A. Click OK to save your changes and close the dialog box.
Now you can simply press Ctrl-Alt-A to navigate to the selected site. If you're not connected when you press Ctrl-Alt-A, Microsoft Internet Explorer 3 will open, dial the ISP, and navigate to the site.
