    I've got a new latptop running windows 7 and so far I like it just fine. My question is, is there any way to keep your "favorites" list in alphabetical order, including new ones as you add them?

    Sure, right click and sort by name.

    Just as an FYI, if you download Google's Chrome browser, it can automatically sync your bookmarks, which serves several purposes:

    -Keep bookmarks synced across multiple computers.

    -Keep them backed up so you don't have to worry about losing them.

    -Keep them backed up for when you reinstall your OS, you don't have to do anything but login to your google account.

    FireFox with Xmarks is awesome.

    It stores your favorites in an online account/file.

    You can log on another computer and import your favorites right there, in the exact order you had them.

    TBO;

    Go to Portableapps.com and you can download firefox with Xmarks onto a flash drive and you can run your setup on ANY computer that you can place the thumb drive into even the ones without admin privileges.


    The only thing I am really missing in Windows 7 is the go back one level button in explorer. It was a convenient and easy travel shortcut that they apparently have done away with.
