How to Bookmark Your Favorite Web Page or Website in Internet Explorer

By Edited Oct 5, 2016 0 1

Web Page
There are so many websites and new ones coming online daily that it can be confusing to try to remember a particular website address so you can visit it again. A feature that most web internet browsers have is to store or "bookmark" your favorite web pages so that you can access them again without having to remember or type in the website's internet URL for each visit. The saved website links in Internet Explorer are called "Favorites" and are stored in individual files with their original link name and filename extensions. Once you add a website to the Favorite drop down menu in Internet Explorer, you can simply select it and quickly access the site. With the following instructions, you can easily build a library of your favorite and most useful websites.

Things You Will Need

Computer with Microsoft Internet Explorer

Step 1

Internet Explorer Logo

Go to the website that you wish to bookmark.

Step 2

IE Favorites

Select the "Favorites" from the Internet Explorer tool bar located near the top of the page. Go down to the "Add to Favorites" and left click the mouse or hit enter on your keyboard.

Step 3

IE add favorites screen

A new window will open up listing the websites name and another line giving you the option of which folder you want to create the link in. You can change the name of the link for your listing to something that is easier for you to identify or leave it as it is. For the purpose of these instructions we will keep the folder the default of "Favorites". You can create new folders to categorize your listings and provide a greater level of organization as your number of favorite sites increases. The final step to adding the site is to highlight the "Add" button and left click the mouse or hit the enter key on the keyboard.

By following a few simple instructions, you can easily build a library of your favorite and most useful websites. Once you add a website to the Favorite drop down menu in Internet Explorer, you can simply select it and quickly access the site.

Tips & Warnings

You can bypass steps one and two on Internet Explorer versions 7 and 8 by pressing the Hot-Key combination of Ctrl+D. This may also work on earlier versions of Internet Explorer.
