Yeah I know how that is. If you posted to it here on bc you can hit in your control panel view posts I replied to or something and play search and find.

I cant remember 100% how it was done. I remember how it is done in start/programs but not on IE. I dont even use IE.

In firefox you can sort different ways. Just hit bookmarks and manage bookarks. You can do something similar in IE.

Sorry for the lack of help. If only I had the post....

Open IE and export your favourites. Then import them again. If it asks if you want to overwrite say yes. IE will line them back up again alphabetically.

IE can be re-organizer alphabetically the same way as programs in the start menu.
You have to open Favorites using the bar up at the top of the page. File>Edit>View>FAVORITES>Tools>Help (Sorry, but I can't remember the name.)
Right click on any entry and then click on <Sort by name> in the context menu that pops up. If you need to organize within a folder you've created in Favorites, open Favorites from the same location, open the folder, right click on any entry within that folder and click <Sort by name>.

Hope this helps. :thumbsup:
