    Hello

    I wish to produce a bookmark.htm file from any folder containing internet shortcuts not just the standard favorites folder.

    Is this possible ? My browser is internet explorer 9.

    Regards

    Flynne

    If you have Excel .. You can build an Excel file with hyperlinks and save it as a htm.
    My browser bookmarks are now for temporary/scratch usage only.
    If I want to go somewhere .. I just open my Favs.htm that’s on my desktop.
    And you can always backup (◄) to the htm .. Without having to open Bookmarks again.

    In my opinion .. A single file favs list is crude .. (a poor use of display space)
    A multiple column/row display is better.

    Something like the attached example.
    To edit ... “Open With” the htm in Excel .. or keep the xls

    Is this what you were looking for ???

    Hello Noyb

    Thank you for very interesting alternative answer - it seems much more ordered and more useful than the bookmark version.

    Thanks again.

    regards

    Flynne

    Several of my Computer buddies also like this and wouldn’t it be interesting if someone would write a program to make a Favs.htm for those who don’t have, or know how to use Excel.

    Let’s call this Favs.htm approach Apps .. Since it sorta works like Apps on an iPod or Cell phone

    I’ve been playing with Windows 8 where you have to click on (touch) an App to get to your computer desktop.

    It seems to me that I have the same thing but I click on a desktop Short to get to my Apps.
    This makes a lot more sense to me … Since I’d rather use my computer as a computer to start with.

    I spent several hours trying to find the computer OFF button in Windows 8.
    I finally found it hiding in the fine print in an App.

    After you get past the Apps (metro interface) in Windows 8 …
    It looks to me like it’s still Windows 7 with all the problems (handicaps) as compared to XP.

    I still prefer to use my XP with my App Shortcut
