    The only time I've ever managed it was when I rewrote my hard drive and moved my favorites back into the new folder.... having said that, you might want to try creating a temp folder, moving all your favorites out, open IE, close it up, and move the fav's back in... a bit manual, but hey, it worked for me :D

    BH-Try the tip mentioned above but use the Favorites on the toolbar at the top by edit and view. I don't think it will work from the start menu favorties.

    BH-I just found this little utility and tried it out. I jumbled up some of my favorite folders and the favorites inside of them and clicked "Sort Favorites" and they were sorted back. Be sure and check the option to sort on startup.

    You can't do it from inside IE ?
