    Ordering Favourites in IE7 (IE 7.0.5730...)

    I like to have all my "Favourite Folders" in alphabetical order with the exception of Google and my e-mail which I like to have at the top of the folder list, even though they are not in folders. In IE6, this was possible, in fact you could move folders or individual sites anywhere you wanted in the list. I do not seem to be able to do this in IE7. (Another undocumented feature?) If I sort them alphabetically, that works, but I cannot move Google and the e-mail URL to the top of the folder list.

    What I have had to do is create a folder called AAAA and put both these sites inside it and then I can open this folder and have them at the top of the list. I don't feel like I should have to "fool" the browser in this way. Can anyone shed any light on why this feature of IE6 does not seem to be in IE7? Thanks.

    You should be able to click and drag your favorites in the "Favorites Center", on the Favorites Menu, and within the "Organize Favorites" window.

    Click on the 'Add to Favorites' button or use ALT+Z. Then select organize favorites. You should be able to D+D your folders however you wish.

    Seems to work in the "Organize Favourites" mode, but not in any other mode. When I try it on the Favourites menu, all it does is open the entry I was trying to move. Thanks to all for help.

    Strange...
    For me, it's the same as for <!profile=mbarron>mbarron<!/profile>: I can drag and drop items in Favorites Center, in the Favorites menu and in the Organize Favorites dialog. It works exactly the same way in each.
