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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
