Hi, i organize my favorites the way I like them. Then it stays that way. But if I close the window and open it again, it goes back to normal. Can this have anything to do with making another account? Can it reset it or something? Please help.:cry:

in the white part of the box that pops up right click, go to "arrange icons by" and click "modified", close the window, that should do it

paste "favorites" in the run box, right click in the white field that shows your favorits, go to "arrange icons by", then go to modified

Assuming this is Internet Explorer.

Open Explorer and at the top click on Favorites (next to Tools) then Organize Favorites. Now left-click on a favorites icon in the list then while still holding down the mouse button drag the icon to the order you want and they should stay that way when you reopen the browser.

What I posted does work and since you can not use run then it appears you may not have admin access.

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
