How do you delete websites stored in your "favorite" menu (that's the
icon between the "view" and the "tools"). I've been trying to clean up
my "favorite" menu by deleting sites I don't visit anymore, and I just
can't seem to delete them.

Hi dho1115,

There are two ways of deleting websites stored in Favorites.

One way is by clicking on Favorites in the menu to open it. Then click
on Organize Favorites to open the Organize Favorites window. You can
now double-click any folder to open it. To delete a listing, click it
and press Delete.

If you need to delete more than one listing, it's easiest to open the
Organize Favorites window, click the item you want to delete, then
press Delete. When you want to delete more than one item at a time,
click the first one, then hold down Ctrl while you click the others.
After you select all the items you want to delete, press Delete.

Another way is to click on the Favorites icon on the toolbar. The
screen will split into frames with the Favorites menu on the left. To
delete a favorite, right click on it and select Delete  from the
pop-up menu.

I hope that helps. If you have any questions, or if anything is
unclear, please don't hesitate to ask for further assistance before

Best regards,

Organize your favorite pages into folders for easy editing - Add or delete

As your list of favorite pages grows, you can keep it organized by
creating folders. You might want to organize your pages by topic. For
example, you could create a folder named Art for storing information
about art exhibits and reviews.

On the Favorites menu, click Organize Favorites.
Click Create Folder, type a name for the folder, and then press ENTER. 
Drag the shortcuts (or folders) in the list to the appropriate folders. 
If the number of shortcuts or folders makes dragging impractical, you
can use the Move to Folder button instead.
