If you have a long list of favorites, you can configure Internet Explorer to only display those favorites that you have recently used instead of displaying all of them. This is also a good way of organizing your favorites list so it is more manageable. Those favorites that you use infrequently are still available by clicking a link. In other words, they are just hidden from view until you decide to make then unhidden.

To configure this feature in Internet Explorer:

  1. Open Internet Explorer.
  2. From the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. Select the Advanced tab.
  4. Scroll through the available options and place a check beside the option to Enable Personalized Favorites Menu.
  5. Click OK.

Now when you open Internet Explorer and click on your Favorites menu, only those Web sites that you have recently accessed will be displayed. The remaining favorites are accessible by clicking the down arrow.
