A recent post regarding a desire to always keep the favorites folders expanded motivated me to write about a feature that I enjoy that is not a default setting in IE.

That is the ability to automatically collapse the currently expanded favorites folder when you click on a different favorites folder. I like this because I do not like scrolling up and down to find the favorite I am looking for.



Go to Internet options, Advanced, scroll to Browsing, and select Close unused folders in History and Favorites*, click Apply and OK, then restart IE.
