IE9 Favorites Folders
I have A LOT of favorites that I've organized into folders by category.
Instead of opening every favorites folder each time I open/close IE, is there a way to keep the folders expanded at all times?

I don't think that this is possible.

Now the moved folder should appear into "Favorites Bar".
You can rename the moved folder with short names (e.g. "1" or "2" or "3"). So the "Favorites Bar" can store many folders. And in future you can drag and drop your favorites direct to this folder in the "Favorites Bar" - even direct from the Internet Explorer address line.

If you do not mind sacrificing a little IE space, you can do this.
Click the favoriyes star over on the right., and then clcik the small green icon with an arrow. This gives you a permanent view of the favorites. They can be expanded and will remain so.

On my system they collapse every time I close EI. Is there a trick to keep them expanded?

My expanded folders also collapse into the folder list, when I restart IE. I don't know of any way to avoid this but there may be a hack, or third party utility that can do it.

I don't think that is what he is looking for. He has made several folders, under the main Favorites folder, and wants them open all the time.
