RE: Favorites IE7 did not change after rearrange in Windows Explorer
To all...I closed and reopened IE7 and the newly rearranged favorites were
there after all.
The new ones moved down to the bottom of the list instead of the order I had
put them ( I have a LONG list of favorites). Senior moment. Sorry for the
inconvenience. No need to reply to this post. Didn't know how to edit or
remove my first post.
