Windows 7: Favorites Library

Favorites Library


Does Windows 7/IE8 have the ability to use library folders for it's favorites? I have some I want shared between many PC's but don't want to change the default Favorites folder location.

Just open Libraries and click New Library. Right click New Library, choose Properties. Add any folder.

Yes I know that, but how can I get IE to look at this library for it's favorites?

In addition you will need to manually share the library with the users or homegroup if you want network availability

I believe to link this to IE8 you would need to move the favourites to point to the location

Right click on favourites and use the location tab
