Hello. I am new to the site and would like to mention that viewing the contents, and the knowledge, of the members is great. As a new member, I would like to say I am a guy that leaves in Phila. I am retired but I work p/t as a DJ. I've have been looking at the contents, instructions and the suggested help by the members is great. In looking at the site the other day, I happen to come across a program that would alphabetize your favorites. Unfortunately when I came across it, I did not save it. Has anyone remember seeing it? If so, would you be so kind as to tell me the name of it, so I can try it?

 

Thank you very much,

You didn't mention what browser you were using so I'll assume IE. But instead of going back and forth if that wasn't it. Here is a link for how to alphabetize in IE9, Firefox, and Chrome. As well as in Safari. Yes the Firefox and Chrome versions are dated, but I believe the methodology and ability remains.

And welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Hi Animal. Thank you the quick response to my question. That was fast.I have a question about your reply. I din't see the link for the program. You are correct as I am using IE. But I must be missing something in the post, so can I ask you where it is. Sorry

 

Thanks again,

You're quite welcome.

Let us know how things go. If it doesn't work we can hopefully find that app you once saw.

Hi Animal.

 

I actually thought that there was a different program that could/would put all you favorites in order other then the one that you suggested. I have always used the one you sent me but was kinda hoping that you had a different one. I have used AOL I guess since I started with PC's and I always have added my favorites there. AOL always transfers your favorites from their files as you upgrade AOL and therefor you never lose them. That's were I was hoping to use the favorites program. If you or any members happen to know of a program that I could use and be willing to share, I would appreciate it very much.

 

Thanks again, Animal
