Then click on MOVE, This will then let you put them in any order you want

If I open my Favorites and drag and drop, When I close IE and then re-open - they stay where I put them.

If yours changes back when you re-open IE, Try reseting IE, Click tools, Internet Options, Advanced tab, Then press reset, don't worry, no favorites will be removed.

Ok,

Click Start, In the search box, Type Regedit, Then browse to:

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MenuOrder\Favorites]

Let me know what the Default Value is set to?.

IE 8 Favorites keep resorting alphabetically
The last week or so the IE 8 favorites keep resorting, before this it would happen every few months but now it is several times a day. I've never clicked on "Sort by Name". I've seen a thread where IE 9 has the same problem, so I don't want to upgrade to 9 if I don't have to.
