Auto Re-arrange of my fav. Folder - Help


Whenever I transfer my favorite’s folder (IE), frm one HD to another…..

The fav. Folder re-arranges all my sites “alphabetically automatically”. I prefer to have them in certain order as I placed them…. So any solution to combat this ?

Hello Craige,

I'm not sure of any way to keep it sorted as you like from one location to the next, but if you RIGHT-click inside the folder, you can "sort by date modified" and choose ascending or descending order. Hope this helps some.
