This is one of the cases where I feel Microsoft could have made their instructions much clearer, and also made a minor mistake. First, they said ''select a single Favorites icon from the list''...to me, it sounds like they're instructing you to click on a favorite, when they actually mean choose one, mentally, but not click on it. Also, they tell you to right-click an icon, when it's not specifically an icon that you must right-click...it's simply an entry...the icon or the name. Thus, the revised instructions:
1.) Launch Internet Explorer.
2.) Left-click ''Favorites'' along the top to expand the favorites menu.
3.) Right-click any individual favorite and select ''Sort by Name'' from the right-click menu.
FYI: When I right-click a favorite, I receive the following options in the right-click menu:
* Make available offline
* Send to
* Create shortcut
* Sort by Name
Hope this helps,
According to MS Knowledge Bsse article 307719, one can sort Favorites in IE 6.0 in alphabetical order by doing the following:
1. Start Internet Explorer.
2. Click Favorites, and then select a single Favorites icon from the list.
3. Right-click the icon, and then click Sort by Name.
When I do this, there is no "Sort by Name" item in the menu. Anybody know what's going on? (I'm running Windows XP with IE 6.0.)
