Q: Favorites List order control...

Hi:
This is embarrassing! Somehow, my list of "Favorites/Bookmarks" (Vista/Explorer 8)went to listed in order by when it was entered to an alphabetized order- don't know how it changed, but I just want to get the list back to original based on WHEN the item was listed alpha, not A, B, C order- I have looked everywhere and can't find a way to get the list back to the way it was- PLEASE! Any suggestions would be appreciated!
Thanks

I am running 64-Bit Windows 8.1 Pro and this is more of an annoyance than a problem. When I call up the list of Control Panels from the start menu, they are in alphabetical order from left to right and then top to bottom. Short of installing some third party app, is there a way to change the list to be in alphabetical order from top to bottom and then left to right. I would like to be able to see all of the available control panels at the same time, so narrowing the view to one column doesn't work for me.

Every few months I need to move my list of Favorites to another PC in another country. In the past I exported them to a Flashdrive, then imported to the new PC... but that's when the order changes to alphabetical.
How should I be doing it so the order never changes?

And can I keep the order even after clean-up scans (Norton, Spybot, ad-Aware)?

Hello I have a PC with 2 removable hard drives I have just installed Vista on one of them. I have thousands well not really but lots and lots of favorites saved, I have used Import export ok they are all there but not in the order I had them. It will take me forever well not really but a long long time to reorganize them, any way to save them in the same order

Thank you :)

A:Backing up favorites in same order

It's generally wise to group things into subfolders to avoid that problem.
I think the favorites order is stored in a registry key (though I wouldn't know which one). You'd probably need to export it (the registry key) to save the order, then import it onto another system to restore it.

EDIT: A quick google search suggests the key of interest is
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MenuOrder\Favorites
Run the registry editor (click start, run, then type regedit and press enter), then navigate to that key. Then right click Favorites on the left pane and select export.
To import the key into another system, just open the reg file you created.

When I export my favorites to a new computer, IE re-orders them alphabetically. Is there a way to maintain their original order? I have over 4500 bookmarks and I know how to find them spacially, not alphabetically.

Does anyone know if Firefox does the same thing? One older version of the netscape browser used to retain the order, but newer versions do not [ or at least I don't know how to do it, and I switched to IE since then anyway].

Thanks.

A:Can I retain the order of exported favorites?

Hi backpackrat...I would've thought that this would depend on the folder settings on the computer they were being transfered to.

Also...you could organize the individual favourites into their own folders (i.e: news, sport, work, banking, games etc etc) as that may ease the transfer but make sure you have a large pot of coffee on the go whilst you organize over 4000!!! :)

My old laptop died so I bought a new one. My old HDD was still accessible so I copied the favorites folder to the proper place on the new laptop. 

They're all there, but now they're displaying in the browser sorted by NAME, not by date.  When favorites are created in IE11 they're automatically displayed in date creation order.  You can, of course drag a new entry from the bottom of the list
to some other point and it will stay there, but I have literally hundreds of favorites folders and each folder may have a couple hundred entries. 

I've seen methods to sort the favorites in the browser by DATE, but that's not what I want - I already got that.  And WHY do I have that, anyway?  IF IE creates favorites and automatically sorts them by date, why does copying those favorites automatically
sort them in some other manner?
Even if Microsoft, through some Oscar worthy blunder failed to create a method for sorting those favorites in DATE order, somebody must have come up with some registry tweak to accomplish this.
Of course I know I can put a shortcut to the favorites on the desktop, and then sort them anyway I want, but that's just not as handy as clicking on the yellow star.

How do I save FOLDERS so that they'll be in the order in which I put them on the CD/RW?
I want to save the original file Folder (they're all Word 2000 .doc, or .txt files) then every two weeks or so save a new folder with the revised/updated info, {i}yet keep the preceding ones from being written over.[/i} For example, would something like this be feasible?
:
Folder_00_042103 (this would be the "root folder")
|
Folder_01_051503

and so forth..... I was thinking of putting a Read_Me file on the CD, but presume it'd be stored as last file on the CD after the Folders. Could I put a Read_me file in a folder named, say, Folder_Read_Me? Would it be listed before Folder_00?
:
A problem would be saving a month with a 1 in it (October, Nov., or December), OR a date with only a single digit.
OR would they be sorted/saved to the CD by the Folder 00 ... 01 ... 02 listing?
 

A:How would I list FOLDERS in ORDER on a CD?

I use dates in reverse format at the start of folders or files when I want to do something like you're describing. A new folder or file made yesterday would be:

20030420 Folder Name

while today's would be:

20030421 Folder Name

The folder/file names can be anything I need and they will always be sorted in the folder in the order I first created them. This applies also wehn backed up to a CD.

I use this approach because it often takes me several weeks to get some document completed and I will often remember the rough date when a file was topical, but it would be out of sync after multiple edits, saves, etc.

It also helps in keeping all files of different types related to the same project/topic in a useful order. I know there are many different ways of using the filter options in Windows, but this simple naming approach seems to work fairly well for me.

Hope this helps.

Save it in your My Documents\Favorites subdirectory as prin.bat

Open your My Documents\Favorites subdirectory in Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer) and double click prin.bat to run it. It will print the contents of your Favorites subdirectory - the list of your favorites - to your default printer.

It will not print the urls, but will print the filename the url is listed as. In most cases this will be adequate for use in a search engine to find the site, since the filename is usually based on the webpage's name.

You can use this program to print the directory listing of any directory. Just move it to the directory you want to print and run it.

In lieu of a better answer from another later on, you can rename. Just put a 1 in front of the one that has priority and 2 in front of the next and so on.

Option 2: Make another folder call it priority( or something), and put all the important favorites in that one. The order should not change.

Hi, this is my first post to these forums. I have been trying to fix my desktop computer for quite a while now and thought I'd ask you guys for some help. I am no sure if something is wrong with my hard drive or not. Anyways here is where I am at, I first went into my bios to change the boot order to boot from my cdrom, an when i did, the only thing listed in the order is the Hard Drive and the floppy drive. This seemed odd to me because my cdrw drive works perfectly fine. It burns cd's and dvds fine, and it runs any cd i put into it.

When i put in my windows XP cd to try and format the hard drive and do a fresh install of windows, it just loads windows as normal. It doesn't boot from the cd like it should. Since it won't boot from the cd, I can't delete the partition and install a new one. Any ideas why i the cdrom drive isn't in the bios boot order? Thanks.

Also, my computer is pretty old, but it has worked for a long time and never had one problem with it.
AMD Athlon 3000+ 2.0Ghz
1GB DDR
Radeon 9800 Pro 128mb

The hard drive is about 7-8 years old. That's why I am wondering if it is dying and i just need to purchase another one (as cheap as I could find) just to keep the computer running.

A:CD-ROM drive is not in boot order list...?

If the optical drive is reflected in the main BIOS screen...then it shouod be among the boot options.

If iu's not reflected on the main BIOS screen, then I would check all connections.

I would replace the CMOS battery (first step) anytime I had hardware recognition problems.

I've got 25 separate files of cartoons in a directory that are listed alphabetically, naturally. I want to place them in another temp directory in my preferred order. I suppose a DVD burning program will let me do that before I burn the files to DVD. However, I'd like to have them in my preferred order on my HD. Previously, I would have to laboriously put the numbers 1. 2. 3. in front of each title to have them listed in my preferred order.

Is there a way to force Explorer not to list them in alphabetical order in that temp directory that I want to move them to, without putting the numbers 1.(filename) 2.(filename) 3.(filename) etc. before each file name to have them in my preferred order and not listed alphabetically by file name?

A:List files not in alphabetical order?

File systems are essentially built on a database and as such Windows can arrange based on multiple properties such as name, date, or file type but you can't just specify a display order without adding a prefix. To my knowledge Windows can only arrange based upon information that it can pull from the database.

I saw a post by Noel where he told the OP to install by Date, not KB# which reminded me of a question I've had for quite some time. Are updates generally listed in order of 'Importance' or 'Date' or what?

Right now I'm down to 6 updates left to do. They're all .NET Framework from the 7/9/13 list of updates & in clicking on the "More info button" they're all 7/9 & there are 4 listed for 3.5.1, then 2 listed for 4. I've read something about it's best to install these type one at a time, is that true? If so, that's 6 re-boots in a row if I were to do them all now which I kinda thought about since it's already 2 weeks past Patch Tuesday. I'm also assuming that all the Framework 3.5.1 should be done before the Framework 4.

Thanks.

A:Installation order of list of updates

The KB Number is generated at the start of a project - and as a results bears only some resemblance to the order in which patches are released, since some patches take longer to develop, test and approve, than others.

I generally do .NET update in increasing order by version, then date
e.g for XP, do all v1.1 then v2/3.5 - for Win7, all 3.5, then 4.5 (I've uninstalled 4.0, as it seemed always to create more problems than any other version)

What is going on...today "Favorites" has been loading onto the left side of screen ALL by itself. The Favorites Star appears as though pushed (although I didn't) and it comes up by itself...then goes away, then pops back on again. Anyone but me having this problem???
 

A:Favorites list popping up by itself

Is it going away on its own when you open different instances of IE? Or do you open one window and watch it flash back and forth?

I am running windows 7 Home Premium, ie 8 Version 8.0.7601.17514. My favorites are in Users/Owner and contains all the shortcuts. However when in ie, favorites are empty.

Created a new user, deleted links and favorites from Owner and copied links and favorites from New User to Owner. Still nothing.

Did reverse, copied Links and Favorites that were in Owner to New User, and they appear under New User!

Is there link broken or corrupted file on Owner?

A:Favorites list missing

Hi. . .

Try this:

Bring up an Elevated command prompt -
START | type cmd.exe into the start box | right-click on cmd.exe | select run as administrator - then type the following, line-by line and hit enter after each -

Code:

cd %userprofile%

md Favorites


Did you get an error saying something like ... directory already exists..? or did the cursor just go to the next line?

Regards. . .
