Searching Your IE Favorites

Most Internet surfers who spend any amount of time on the web are proud owners of an unwieldy Favorites list . Unless you're super- organized, it can often be a quite chore to find a certain shortcut in that chaos. Internet Explorer doesn't provide an obvious way to search your Favorites folder.

Here's a trick I use anytime I can't find a shortcut that I know is in there somewhere.

  1. From the Internet Explorer menu select Favorites
  2. Move the cursor down and right-click on one of the folders.
  3. Click on Find. (The Find dialog box appears).
  4. Click in the 'Look In' field and delete all text to the right of \Favorites\
  5. Enter your search term in the Named field.
  6. Click Find Now.
