yellow-starHave you ever run across a website or article directory that you liked and then could never find it again? This can happen to anyone and it happens entirely too often. The easiest fix is to bookmark them using a feature your web browser provides.

Depending on the browser you use to access the internet, it may be called something different. It could be called bookmark or it could be called favorites. If you use Internet Explorer this feature is called Favorites. Since more people use Internet Explorer for their web browser, that is what we will discuss in this article.

Go to the site you want to bookmark, click on Favorites, and then click on Add to Favorite. This will bring up a window that will give you the ability to call it what you want. If the description in there isn’t something you will be able to remember, then you will need to change it to something that will jog your memory.

If you do this process often, your window for your favorites could grow quite lengthy and it could take you a long time to find what you are looking for. I recommend you creating folders for sites that are similar. For example, if you have a lot of sites that are for advertising, you can create a folder called advertising sites and then move all those sites to that folder. This process is also under favorites and it’s usually under the organize your favorites option. When you click on this option, you will see a list of all your favorites and you will be able to move them from one place to another with ease.

If you are going to move them around in the main list, then you will click and drag. If you are moving your favorites from the main list to a folder, you will need to first create that folder. To create the folder, you need to go to organize your favorites. At the bottom of the window that pops up you will see new folder. Click on that and you will see a new folder pop up and you will be able to call it what you want. Once you create the folder, you are ready to start moving links into that folder. To do this, you will need to do it one site at time. Click on the site you want to move and then click on the move button at the bottom of the window. This will bring up a list of the folders you have. Click on the one you want it to go to and click ok. When you are all done, you can go back to your favorites list and you will be able to see all the folders you created and all the sites that are within that folder.

Following these steps to organize websites you visit regularly and organizing your favorites will make your time online more organized. You will spend less time searching for websites which will allow you to spend more time working your business and with your family.
