    How to Reset Color on Individual "Viewed" IE8 Links

    I watch videos on Wimp.com, a wonderful web site. Whenever I click on one of the links, the link font color changes. This is very helpful so I know at a glance which videos I've watched. Occasionally, though, a video is too long for me to watch at that time or I get distracted. How can I change the color of a specific link back to "unread" while leaving all the others as is? I use IE8, XP SP3. Can you help, please?

    It's quite easy actually. After you watch part of a video, IE adds it to the sites you've viewed in the History menu. To mark it as unread (not viewed yet), hit CTRL+H to open history in the side bar, find the link to the site you just viewed in the "Today" menu, right click it and choose "Delete".

    For example, in the screenshot, I viewed this video: http://www.wimp.com/laziestcat/ If I now delete the link in the History menu on the left with the same title, it will revert to being default again.
