I have 850 bookmarks on Firefox and 650 on IE. There is no way I know how to manage all these. I have to take pot luck when using them and sorting does not help.

There are over time, many duplicates but again it is impossible to find them manually.

This tiny stand alone program is wonderful to at least try to manage them :-

Deletion of duplicates is easy. Deletion by selection the same - just click the selected items keeping CNTRL pressed down, this enables a multiple delete.

Just be careful and visually check the list to see if there are any marked items there that should not be. It is all very easy and quick.

Ha...I've been using that for years :thumbsup:. Great tool, IMO.

I keep over 1,000 favorites as ready-reference material and I use AM Deadlink to help me check the connections which are outdated, involve redirection, etc.

Another little program that I find useful is Bookmark Wizard, I use it to manufacture an .html list of the links I described above, which I can then put into alphabetical order and quicly find any link that I want (rather than scrolling through IE's favorites listing).

I'm sure there are other tools like these that may be faster/better...I'm lazy and these two do what I want done :flowers:.

I've been using Keynote for a couple of years now to store links to applications, canned responses, reference sites, and how to links.
