Which Windows OS?
Which Favorites, ie the Favorites listed in Windows Explorer or the Favorites you select in Internet Explorer?
If you mean Windows Explorer Favorites then may be cutting/pasting is not the best method.
I don't use Windows Explorer favorites myself but the article in the link below seems to suggest other methods of adding to favorites;
Note where the article says you cannot save links to Windows Explorer Favorites.
When I add a link to my favorites, it won't save to a folder. Instead, I have to save it in the general section and then cut and paste into the folder.
However, when I do this the first time each day, the computer freezes and I have to end the program in the task manager. After that it seems to be ok.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
