Windows 7: Faster Access To Favourites In IE9?

Faster Access To Favourites In IE9?

I have many folders of favourites in IE9. If I wish to scroll from A to Z I have to put my mouse on the little arrow on the top or bottom and it seems to take forever to auto scroll. Is there a fasterway to scroll from A to Z?

Kind Regards

You can type the first letter(s) of the favorite folder while you are in Favorites. This will immediately take you to that area of folders.

It is not faster scrolling but you get there fast.

You can also click and hold on the scroll bar and drag the list to where you want it.

Thanks very much for this tip. I have learned something new ie. with the favourites tab open typing one letter will take me to that alphabetical group.

I am not sure what you mean though about dragging the scroll bar. Holding the mouse over the little arrow causes the list to auto scroll. I can't see a scroll bar (which is what I wan't) like in a normal window. What do I need to do to get a scroll bar in the favourites list?

Kind Regards

Thanks. Previously I was only seeing the attached screenshot which did not have the scroll bar. I did some research and found out how to make the scroll bar appear by clicking on the star icon or using control + shift + I. Thanks again!

Kind Regards
