Using the Context Menu to Manage Favorites
As with any application from Microsoft, Internet Explorer also opens up a context menu whenever you right click on any of the entry in the Favorites menu. The context menu offers a number of options to manage your favorites (see Fig 2). You can remove, delete, and sort the webpages stored in the Favorites folder using the context menu.
To remove a webpage or an entire subfolder from the Favorites menu is easy. Just right click on the link or subfolder that you wish to remove. From the context menu, select Delete. This will present you with a confirmation box. Once you click on OK, the link or subfolder will be removed from the Favorites menu.
To rename a webpage, right click on the name of the webpage or folder to open the context menu, and click on Rename. In the dialog box that appears, type in a new name, and click OK.
To sort the entries in the Favorites menu, open the context menu, and select Sort by Name. This command will keep all the folders on the top and re-arrange the other items alphabetically.
To assign a shortcut to a link, select the option Properties at the bottom of the context menu. In the Properties dialog, select the Web Document tab. Place the cursor in the shortcut textbox and press the key combination that you wish to use as shortcut (example CTRL + ALT + F11). Note that you will not be able to use the Windows shortcuts such as CTRL + C (copy) or CTRL + V (paste). Internet Explorer will automatically add in one more special key (for example, CTRL + ALT + C) when you try to use such shortcuts.
