Organize Your Favorites

By: Arie Slob

The interface for organizing your favorites has been drastically redesigned. You start by selecting Favorites > Organize Favorites from the menu.

Organize Your Favorites

Here is a description of what the buttons do:

  • Create Folder: Clicking here is a obvious. This will create a new folder in your favourites. If you've already selected a folder, it will create a sub-folder
  • Rename: This lets you rename any of your folders or a favourite
  • Move to Folder: This lets you move selected items to an other folder
  • Delete: This will either let you delete a whole folder, or simply delete a single favourite, depending on your selection

When you select a favorite, you will see a new option on the left - Make available offline

Make available offline

This will make Internet Explorer 5 download all of your favourites that you have selected to make sure you have the most up-to date information available to you (for offline reading). If you select the Make available offline box, you'll see a button (called Properties) which lets you customize the connection, schedule frequency & time and the amount of data to download.


Occasionally, when you click Organize Favorites on the Favorites menu in Internet Explorer, you may receive the following error message:

  • 	An error has occurred in this dialog
    	Error: 373 No such interface supported.
