How to Alphabetize IE8 Favorites

IE8 in Win7 is perfect as far as I'm concerned, making the others look amateur by comparison. Only prob is I couldn't arrange 150 favorites in Alphabetical order to get to them faster. Here's how:

Rightclick on any favorite in list, opens Management Menu.

Select "Sort By Name."

Done.

I should have asked here!

Instead I googled it regularly and the factual answer never showed up until today.
