Objective 3. Create and Manage Favorites

The History list automatically tracks sites you visit each time you start Internet Explorermany of which you may never visit again. The Favorites list works differently. The Favorites list contains Web addresses for sites you plan to visit frequently. You intentionally add addresses to the Favorites list and Internet Explorer keeps the list for you. When you install Internet Explorer, a short list of Microsoft sites is added to the Favorites list. You can delete these addresses, add new addresses, and organize favorite site addresses into folders. For example, you might have a folder for Travel Sites, for College Sites, and so on. In Activities 1.7 through 1.9, you will add a new favorite, create a new folder, navigate to a site listed in favorites, and delete a favorite.
