Hello lovely people 🙂
I was recently asked about searching through Internet Explorer favourites. So, here is a computer repairs blog entry just on that. If you use Vista or Windows 7 – for you it is as simple and easy as creating a *saved search* folder.
To begin just open up your User folder and you should see your Favourites folder inside it. Double-click to open the Favourites folder.
Now simply enter in the following into the search box to find all bookmarks for the last hundred years or so:
Click the *Save Search* button on the toolbar, and then give your new folder a names such as *Search Favourites*. You’ll see that the default save location is User Folder Searches.
You’ll see a folder called *Search Favourites* when you browse to that folder, you will be able to create a shortcut to this folder anywhere you would like – for example to your Quick Launch bar.
When you open up the Search Folder you will be able to type into the search box to find whatever you are looking for.
You can always change the view to show details if you wish by using the *Views* menu.
Worked? Good! Now you are practically a qualified computer repairs technician 😉
