Internet Explorer 10: Saving Favorite Sites in a Favorites List

By Andy Rathbone

Having a hard time finding your favorite websites? Keep them all in one place by compiling a Favorites list in Internet Explorer10. When browsing the Internet through IE 10 in Window 8, you’ll certainly come across a web page that’s indescribably delicious and worth revisiting.

Add your favorite web pages to Internet Explorer’s built-in Favorites list by following these steps:

  1. Click the Favorites icon on Internet Explorer’s toolbar.

    The icon, a five-pointed gold star, appears at the top-right of the screen. When you click it, a little menu drops down.

  2. On the drop-down menu, choose Add to Favorites.

    A box appears, offering to name the web page by its I — the words that appear on the tab at the page’s top:


  3. Click Add to add the page to your Favorites list.


Whenever you want to return to that page, click Internet Explorer’s Favorites button. When the Favorites menu drops down, click your favorite site’s name.

Librarian-types like to organize their menu of favorite links: Click the Favorites button, click the arrow by the Add to Favorites button, and choose Organize Favorites. That lets you create folders for storing similar and group-related links in single folders.

Don’t see your favorites on the drop-down menu when you click the Favorites button? Click the Favorites tab at the menu’s top to switch to them. (You may be looking at the History tab, covered in the sidebar, or the RSS feeds tab, which lists a site’s headlines.)
