Internet Explorer: open multiple bookmarks in a bookmarks folder ?

How do I open all bookmarks in a bookmarks folder in IE ?
- in Palemoon and Firefox it is just RClick the folder -> Open all in tabs ... one click and all URLs open

A DDG search results lists for IE-8 etc, older than IE-11, but no help for IE-11

I am using ...

My favs with one typical folder
- my favs are on Favorites and NOT the Favorites Bar

The context menu offers nothing !

Open just opens the folder in WinExp
Restore Previous Versions has nothing to do with opening all tabs

Dosic you are a life saver

I don't like IE; prefering ... Palemoon ... Firefox when I am desparate ... and IE when my bed is on fire.

At the moment I am setting up new Lenovo laptop and need IE to get started ...
As my wife says, I was having a "boy look" ... "Dosic" your suggestion solved my frustration

I have been using the Organise Favorites window opened with ... Ctrl+B ...
... OR ... MenuBar -> Favorites -> Organise Favorites -> Organize Favorites (dialog)
A floating window to only arrange bookmarks, or open single bookmarks, but not open all bookmarks within a folder.
As in my original post #1

From your tip-off (and my ferreting around) ... there are 2 other possabilities for a no-captioned side-bar ... the Explorer Bar where multiple bookmarks within a folder can be opened together.
- only identified by the 3 tabs ... Favorites | Feeds | History
  1. Right hand side-bar as a popout (no caption) ... disappears if you open/activate another window.Activated with the star icon in top-right of IE window
    ... OR ... Alt+C
    Internet Explorer: open multiple bookmarks in a bookmarks folder ?-1_rhand-popout.png
  2. Left-hand sidebar-panel (no-name) ... permanent, can be shown or hidden (toggled) with ...
    MenuBar -> View -> Explorer Bars -> Favorites
    ... OR ... Ctrl+Shift+I

If I want to open all the links in a Favorites (Bookmarks) folder (in IE), I just hover over the folder, then click on the little blue arrow to the right of the folder name. I can also right click on the folder and click on "Open in tab group". Each link in the folder will then open in its own tab.

While I don't agree with your preferences, I love the way you put it! Based on that, my bed has been ashes for years.
