    I can live with this explorer 7 if I can figure out how to put my favorites at the top again . I do not want to have to go into the favorites folder to retrieve my favorite sites.

      I'm a Mac user, so I am not familiar with Internet Explorer 7. You want to keep it though, because it fixes security vulnerabilities.

        I would personally get rid of it and wait a few months.

        But, if you don't want to do that, go into Favorites - Organize Favorites and copy the ones that you want on top into the "Links" folder. I don't have IE7 but that's how it's been up until then, so I'm assuming the terminology is the same.

          see this is a problem, I can not find anything. favorites pop up as favorites but nothing about how to do what you said. when I go to favorites there is my links, but no way to copy them to the top

            I don't know how to get them back to the top. I'm used to retrieving my bookmarks from the star (new bookmark icon) so it doesn't bother me anymore. Took a couple of days to get used to. I like being able to open new windows (tabs) on the same page. It makes it quite easy to navigate through all the open windows.

              Is Favorites listed on the toolbar? Up there with File - Edit - View etc. If so, click on Favorites there and it should pop up the list of your favorites but somewhere there should be the options to "Add to Favorites" and to "Organize Favorites." That's what you're looking for.

                click on the top gray part of the screen and right click. Enable the Menu Bar, if it still isn't there click on Tools, Internet Options then the Advanced tab. Check enable personalized favorites menu. I don't know, that's what I did.

                  Yeah, listen to him! Because I don't even have IE 7 installed. And even if I did, I don't use IE, I use Firefox. Why am I even trying to help? It's in my blood, man.

                        Hate to say it but you kind of need to play around with them all. I was used to opening a second window by using the toolbar. Now you have to click the tab next to the the little window that describes what page you're on. Very confusing at first but easy to use once you get used to it.

                          The tabs are the best part of 7. You can be working (or chatting, or posting) in 2 different places at the same time, without having to open a whole new window and moving them around.

                              Ugh, get rid of it, Karla. Get Firefox. Better, less security risks (And it has tabs. You can even color code them!!)

                              Even at work they're telling us NOT to upgrade to IE 7... and you know where I work so I consider that to be a pretty big thing!
                              Good morning, son
                              In twenty years from now
                              Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                              And I can tell you 'bout today
                              And how I picked you up and everything changed
                              It was pain
                              Sunny days and rain
                              I knew you'd feel the same things...
