    Hello to all. My first post. Running XP Pro. My favorites went to all alphabetic listing including some of what was in my folders. I don't know how it got that way and I don't know how to get it back. With so many favorites its a big mess trying to find them all and put back in the right folders.

    Welcome to TSG.
    Apparantly someone clicked on the 'sort by name' option...Which browser are you using?

    I'll assume it's IE7. Anyway, you can organize favorites by clicking on the star with the green +. Here you can create folders,move and organize your list. if you don't use folders (like one for all things sports) you can also just click on one and drag it up and down to where you want it.

    Thanks. I had to do them one at a time but that was a good time to dump some of my favorites. Geez! I can build them but thats about it.

    New problem. As soon as I got through changing everything and went on my favorites they were all put back in alpha order again! How do I get them off of alphabetical order?
