Windows 7: IE 8 and Win 7 64

IE 8 and Win 7 64

My Favorites menu within IE 8 consists of both links and folders, with the folders helping me organize my links. I can view these via IE8, and also from within the User/Favorite folder.

What I used to be able to do (with Vista 64) is drag a weblink into one of my favorite folders. I could drag a link onto one of the folders (in the Favorite menu), and the folder would open up, and I could drop the link into that folder.

However, I am unable to do that from within IE8 now. I have to either go out of IE8 and into the User/Favorite folders themselves to drag and move the link, or use "Organize Favorites" from within IE8. I do not have any custom IE 8 settings that could affect that, pretty sure.

Is this a "feature", or a bug? Somewhat aggravating at times.

Win 7 64, clean install.

Thx

Why don't you use it the way it is designed by using " Add to Favorites"? This dragging business is not a very precise function.

I suppose because it saves significant time....I websurf quite a bit that is work related on topics that I research, and collect quite a few links. Using the Organize Favorites option is simply slower than the other.

Plus, this method was working until Win 7 64, so I am surprised this is no longer an option.

If a "feature", I will learn to live with it. If a "bug", I want to get it corrected.
