    Really only want one administrator identity and desktop for my husband and I--our only difference is choice of home page and favorites in Internet Explorer. So is it possible to have two separate, distinct, IE's on the desktop.....one for me and one for him?

    Thanks....and THANKS for all the solutions that I've lurked thru on this site!

    Use separate login accounts. Then you'll have separate profiles with separate Favorites folders.

    Thanks, but I wanted to avoid that since IE homepage and favorites are the only applications that we don't have same. I just thought it would be great to just have two IE's on the same desktop....one mine and one his. I guess it's not possible. Thanks for replying.

    I suppose you could share one and put all your favourites into a folder

    one for him and one for you

    Another option that you might check, install Firefox and you can have the bookmarks that you want on it
    and use IE for the other. You can use IE and Firefox at the same time.

    That's a good solution and I'm going to pursue it. I've never used firefox but here's a good chance to jump in. Thanks to everyone who answered. I love this site.

    I think you will really like Firefox. I have been using it since version .08.
    If you have any problems with Firefox, just post on the forum and you
    will receive the best of help.
