Internet Explorer® 8 Bookmarks for Windows® 7
Windows Internet Explorer 8 is the latest web browser developed by Microsoft in the long running Internet Explorer browser series. The browser was released on March 19, 2009 for Windows 7 and for other operating systems as well. IE 8 has both 32-bit and 64-bit builds. In Internet Explorer 8, you keep bookmarks for all of your favorite Web sites so that you can visit them again easily. You can also use these bookmarks which are also known as favorites from the Favorites/Feeds/History Explorer bar. You can click the 'View Favorites', 'Feeds' and 'History' button which are simply labeled Favorites to open this bar. You can also press Alt+C from your key board.
When you first start adding bookmarks to the Favorites tab of the Favorites/Feeds/History bar, you will find pre-existing folders for this such as Microsoft Websites, MSN Websites and Windows Live. Also, the Favorites folder may have a folder with your computer manufacturer’s favorite Web sites called something like “XYZ” Corporation Recommended Sites. It will have Mobile Favorites folder only if you connect a hand-held device to the system and a folder known as Imported Bookmarks if you import bookmarks created in any other Internet browser and you want to use those bookmarks on your system.
Adding bookmarks to the Favorites toolbar
If you regularly plan to visit the Web site then you may want to add its bookmark as a button on the Internet Explorer 8’s Favorites toolbar. You follow these two simple steps to add a favorite Web site as a button on the Favorites toolbar:
1. First of all, you need to open Internet Explorer 8 by clicking the Internet Explorer Quick Launch button on the Windows taskbar and then open the Internet page that you want to add to the Favorites toolbar.
2. Now you need to click the toolbar’s 'Add to Favorites' Bar button which is the one with only the star and with the plus sign icon and no label that appears to the right of the View Favorites, Feeds, History button at the immediate of the Favorites toolbar.
Internet Explorer 8 then adds a button for that Internet page to the starting of the Favorites toolbar which is to the immediate right of the Add to Favorites Bar button. Now, you can click this toolbar button every time you want to show the Web site in the present tab of the browser.
