IE7 Favourites

  Declanworld 08:20 12 Feb 08

I've had to install IE7(from IE6) as XP SP3 caused crashes. IE6 automatically closes one Favourites folder when another is opened. Anyone know how to do this in IE7?

In IE7 you open a new tab.

I'm sorry but that doesn't answer my question.

If I click on a Favorite, the browser goes to that site, meaning the previous page is closed, whether a Favorite or not. Or do I not understand the question?

Open IE properties > Advanced, then click "Close unused folders in History and Favorites" restart IE.

Sorry Graham, I was referring to what happens when I click on a folder of favourites - not on a specific favourite.

Many thanks - that's perfect. Beats me why that's not the default setting.

Do you know what, that very thing has annoyed me for long enough!

In File, Properties, I don't have Advanced :-(
Am I taking the wrong route?

Graham try
tools>internet options>advanced?

Thanks, now I can see it. The option was already ticked, so it is the default.
