Favorites Panel Keeps Rearranging My Links and Folders In Alphabetic Order.

My internet favorites panel keeps on rearranging all its folders and shortcuts/links in alphabetical order even though i manually rearrange them everytime.

Can i stop this from happening ?

Thanks in advance.

What ? You guys are kidding right ? I thought this was a walk in the park for you guys .

I actually knew how to do this a long while ago. But recently did a system restore and have now forgotten how to do this.

Haha, be fair plainman007 it's a kind of lazy question isn't it? Surely this kind of info will pop up in any google search...

I haven't tried this in a long time, but right click any of the shortcuts and see if u get a drop down menu with the sort options.

Hi Zapionics,

I googled and found lots of articles, none seemed to work and thats why i posted here.

IT DOESNT work no matter all the methods i tried. Exhausted options and came here looking for an answer.

It used to work till date until i did an image restore.

Thanks

Re: Favorites Panel Keeps Rearranging My Links and Folders In Alphabetic Order.

Export Favorites (save)
Delete Favorites folder
Remove and reinstall IE
Import Favorites

By any chance did you install some sort of Windows Tweaks tool? If yes, you may want to look there as well.

Well now u have intrigued me with this mystery. Next time I'm on Windows and IE I will have a look...
Just check that u have locked the tool bars again after moving the shortcuts to where u want them, right-click on the "Links" toolbar at the top of the window and select "Lock the Toolbars".

Otherwise, what version of IE are ru running?

Re: Favorites Panel Keeps Rearranging My Links and Folders In Alphabetic Order.

FWIW > I found the root cause and its none of the above. Except it might fall under the tweak tool hint that JimTram mentioned.
Im just posting the answer here just in case some other poor soul has this same dumb question, it might help them.

The problem was that the Ccleaner app was clearing out the menu order cache.
So if this problem occurs its worth looking at your Ccleaner settings and unselect the Menu Order Cache option. This has now solved my problem and
my favourite links now maintain their drag and drop order.

However, thanks to those who tried providing alternate methods which might
help in case someone else not running Ccleaner is having this issue.

Re: Favorites Panel Keeps Rearranging My Links and Folders In Alphabetic Order.

...and this is another reason why Mac's seem more appealing.

Glad your up and running. BTW, CCLeaner is not needed. Get rid of it. All it's functions can be invoked manually.

FWIW I can never get IE9/10 to run more than a day or two without a "not responding" error. I am on FF21 now and never have problems. Same for Chrome.
