Placing two large files in alphabetical order that is on AOL

by curious19020 / February 6, 2010 7:07 AM PST

I have AOL on my PC. I have my "Favorites" and I have my "Saved email" both stored on my AOL. Neither of which can I click and be able to choose to place both, which are two separate files, in alphabetical order. Right click does not have that choice nor can I find anything on AOL that will give me this option. I am using Windows 7 and AOL 9.5. Anyone have an easy way, or does anyone have and way or idea that I might be able to do this. I tried to copy all my saved email, but it would not all allow me to do it. I right clicked and select all or clicked on the first one and the then the last one, would not allow me to copy all. Anyone have any, shall I say easy ways or any sugg for that matter?

What are these files and where do you want 'place'?

What do you mean by "both stored on AOL"?

is needed to answer the questions if the OP can't find out himself.

It's the latest version of the classical AOL program "combining email, instant messaging and Web browsing". It even has tabs!

I don't use that program. Neither do you, as far as I know.

Ahh I see

And you're right, I have never used AOL, so I must pass on this.

My first internet experience was with Compuserve, when it was a closed internet community like AOL was at that time. I didn't stay with them long because I found the experience too restrictive.

The files that need to be place in alphabetical order
by curious19020 / February 6, 2010 11:23 PM PST

On AOL you can store your favorites on the right side so you can access them easily. As well, on the left side there are folders that you can store your old emails either save on your PC or on AOL. I choose to save many of my emails on AOL. Sorry to say but I can not place either files in alphabetical order, so they would be easier for me. I really diddn't think that this would be such as tough question for someone to answer. If someone has any version of AOL, they will know what I am talking about, Anyone have an answer?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
