Propellerhead Top Tip

The Favorites list in Internet Explorer sometimes seems to have a mind of its own. Much of the time it grows in an apparently random manner, as new entries are added but if you try to take charge, by sorting it alphabetically (right-click an entry and click ‘Sort by name’) then frequently visited sites end up all over the place. Propellerhead knowns of an easy way to bring order to the chaos and that’s to force your favourite Favorites to appear at the top of the list. It’s easy, just right click on the ones you want to see, select rename and type an ‘A’ plus a space in front of the name. If you want to sort them into a specific order then type a number after the letter, i.e. A1, A2 and so on. There’s loads more where that came from on the BootLog website, just click the Top Tips link.

  • Better still use Surfulater to permanently save clippings, web pages and bookmarks. Surfulater lets you edit clipped content, add notes, rate bookmarks, link items together, organize them in a tree and find anything in a snap. See

  • it is much wiser ( and costs nothing) to use the “groups’ feature in Maxthon browser – just add your prefrred favorites to “groups” arranged by personal taste and interest and then , with a click, they all open up simultaneously in many tabs. No need to re-aarange and rename them at all!
