    in ie my customized favorites no longer stay the way I have customized them,in the past I just dragged & dropped my favorites & they stayed that way but now when I close & reopen they automaticly alphabetize .
    Any suggestions?
    I just recently did a format.

    hi bluzeboy

    type favorites into the run box and hit enter

    then go to view, arange icons by

    switch that from "name" to "modified"

    now, if you have a particular order that you don't want to change, you can go further

    keep view to "name"

    then rename each favorites with numbers before each one...in the order you want

    bing, always in the right spot

    did you try restarting oe after the change?

    anyway, if that didn't work, from the same favorites from run, try tools, folder options, restore default.

    also, are you doing this with administrator rights?

    glad that worked, but I'd like to find out why view, modified didn't work

    if you ever get that sorted, send to me the solution
