    Question Question about organizing IE9 favorites albhabetically

    I arranged my Favorites in my own order and then, I Exported them.

    Then I did the following:

    Deleted my Favorites and then, I Imported them from the File I had saved.

    My Listing Order was lost.

    Favorites were listed Alphabetically AGAIN with
    the Favorite Folders being Always Above the Individual Favorites!

    Is there a Way to prevent it?

    BECAUSE,
    I like to have my Favorites listed on my Own Order
    (i.e. Not Alphabetically
    and Not the Favorite Folders being always above the Individual Favorites).

    I dont think there is a way to prevent that. You have to manually rearrange them again, after you import them.

    I hope IE Developers will eventually add this Feature to the Next version of IE.
    Meanwhile, I will be forced to use a Second browser (although -like most users- I don't like having another Browser...)

    You can try to solve the problem with a naming convention. Start the name of those folders that you want to have on top with a number. A folder named "1Zeta" will be on top of a folder named "Alpha"

    I guess I have to do the same with Individual Favorites Inside/Outside Folders
    (e.g. 1-Favorite C, 2-Favorite A, 3-Favorite D, 4-Favorite B etc.)
    to have them the Way (i.e. my Non-Alphabetical Listing Order) I want them to be,
    so that they will Not get lost each time I Import them...

    I have less than 50 Favorites,
    BUT most people I know have more than 100 Favorites.

    None of them is willing to Rename
    one-by-one (e.g. 1-Favorite C, 2-Favorite A, 3-Favorite D, 4-Favorite B etc.) their Favorites
    so that IE can keep the Non-Alphabetical Order
    when they Export & Import their Favorites.

    IE needs a Flexible Favorites/Bookmarks Manager/Organizer
    (like the ones found on other Browsers).
