    Why won't IE allow me to type in the entire name of the Favorite when searching?

    I have lots of IE Favorites. When I want to find a Favorite, I can only type in the first letter to search for that folder. But I have lots of similar spelled folders. Why can't I type in the entire word or entire name of the Favorite folder when I want to move a URL there or search the folder?

    I CAN do that with Outlook. When you have an email that you need to file, you click to Move and just type in the entire folder name. It works great. How come IE Favorites doesn't allow me to do the same easy search for folders?

    Thanks. Craig
