    Question Finding a web site in my Favorites

    I have a considerable number of web sites in a considerable number of folders in my "Favorites". I would like to know if there is a way to search through the folders to find out if I have bookmarked a particular site and, if I have, which folder is it in. That way I don't have two, or more, copies of the same web site in different folders within my "Favorites". Thanks.

    Simplist way:
    Type in the windows search area: "Favorites; name of website" ..without the quotes.

    ie.

    ...as you can see I have a couple of doubles spread throughout my favorites.

    Clint's suggestion works because the favorites are actually stored in a folder called.... drumroll please.... Favorites. You might have to index your PC to include this folder.
