Cannot sort "Favorites" alphabetically.

Hello,

I am new to Windows 7 and cannot seem to sort my "Favorite" Websites alphabetically as I did in Windows Vista. What am I missing? Thank you.

I'm assuming you refer to IE8.
See if this works -

Click the Favorites button,
right-click any item,
and then click Sort by Name.

Sorry I forgot to say I am using IE9 now. I used to do as you suggested when I used IE8.
