    Max Number of Favourites Reached


    Hi. I save a lot of music websites on youtube on my favourites under "music." I think I have around 140 websites that has accumulated over 2 years. I probably should delete some. But the problem is that when I open internet explorer through start screen and click the favourites button, there is a limit to how many websites I see and can click. I prefer to use Internet Explorer without entering desktop. Is there a way to see all my favourites?

    Thanks for all the help!

    Hello Martial, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Are you able to view more favorites using step 8 in the tutorial below to open different folders of favorites?

    If you haven't already, you might see how it works if you add more subfolders in your Music folder to be able to see more of them in each separate folder.

    Hope this helps for now,

    Thanks Brink. I like these tutorials. I think I'm going to Favourite it. No really, I favorited it.

    Step 8 did not tell me how to view more than a limit of websites under favourites. However those tutorials are informative and I've learned a few hotkeys (I looked up how to open up new tabs). I will organize my music favourites with new folders and delete any I don't like anymore.

    I have another question if you don't mind. Can we easily search for something in our favourites?

    You could search from within your C:\Users\(UserName)\Favorites folder.
