A home from home for your favourites

Saturday, August 11, 2001

All those web shortcuts can soon mount up and get out of control, and since your browser has to process them every time you open a new window, this can dramatically slow it down. If you remove them from your favourites folder altogether and place them elsewhere, you will find that since far less processing power is required to run your browser it will suddenly become much more nimble. Once your favourites have been rehoused in a new folder you can begin categorizing them using subfolders making them easier to navigate and manage. Now if you right click on the taskbar and select 'tool bars' followed by 'new tool bar' you can transform your new shortcuts folder into a structured, self-expanding menu system which can be dragged anywhere on the screen. You could even have it hidden on your desktop so that when you hover your mouse pointer over it, it will magically spring into action.

Once you have your new shortcut folder all fired up and raring to go, you could also use 'Bookmark Wizard' to automatically generate an HTML page from it. This cunning widget will neatly arrange all your shortcuts under separate headings on a single web page which can then be set as your home page. You can download this handy labour-saving device from and you'll be pleased to know that it's completely free.
