Paul,

 

           Since there are a number of potential programs to which Favorites apply, could you please tell us exactly where you're trying to see favorites arranged alphabetically by name?

 

            Also, unless it's for reasons of vision, which anyone will understand if you mention it, using all capital letters online is considered to be the equivalent of shouting and generally isn't done.  I can tell by your tone that's not what you're doing, but it's a convention worth mentioning and knowing that you need to say something if you're doing it because it's easier for you to see goes a long way toward preventing unintentionally ruffled feathers!

You were probably using Internet Explorer on Windows 7 and you are probably using Edge on Windows 10. You can use Internet Explorer on your system, but you will have to go into the default program list and change from Edge to Internet Explorer.

I suspect that Rocky is right and you're talking about the Favorites in Internet Explorer (particularly since you reference a home page).

 

I can't be of too terribly much help to you since I abandoned using Internet Explorer some years ago (using it only when I had to) and am pretty much the same with the new Edge browser.  I can't see any setting in Edge that allows you to set a default sort order for Favorites.  That exists in Firefox and it sounds like it does in Internet Explorer as well.

Purely for information, and for the benefit of anybody else who has visual problems, you can change the apparent size of text in at least Firefox and Internet Explorer quite easily -

 

To make it larger - Ctrl+ '+'

To make it smaller - Ctrl + '-'

 

And if you are writing posts, you can always select a larger font size by clicking on the font size box at the top of the post box.

The default size is 14 point, the above line was written in 18 point.

Chris,

 

         I use the Ctrl+Plus Sign and Ctrl+Minus Sign commands in Firefox with regularity with my clients who have visual impairments.  What's nice (and can be a pain, too) is that Firefox will remember your chosen magnification settings for a given webpage (and by that I mean a precise URL) and will automatically present it at whatever level you used when you last visited it.

 

        Chrome has a Zoom control built in under its "hamburger menu" at the upper left that includes incremental increase/decrease and a "go back to 100%" feature built right in.  Windows also allows quite a few tweaks in relation to accessibility and includes a magnifier function.   Anyone with vision difficulties (or even who wants something just a bit larger) had ought to take a look at the Windows Ease of Access Center and/or Personalization options that allow slight enlargement of text everywhere.

If you referring to your Bookmarks list with windows 10 Edge browser, you have to manually arrange the list. It will not automatically alphabetize. The easiest way to arrange is click/drag a Bookmark to the desired position and hit the "enter" button.

Or just change web browsers.

This works for IE in Windows 10. Edge doesn't have that functionality, yet, so it might be wise to stick with IE until Edge finishes cooking.
