I would ask the first question in the most respectful sense. Why use
Favorites when it is much much faster and particularly with the Explorer
orgnization available in XP or Vista, to just sort folders in any way that
suits you, but name is particularly useful and in Vista then you click to
the right of the category, say name, and click "Group" and you'll get the
categories of files or folders alphebatized and grouped by letters like the
index of a book.
If I were going to use Favorites, and I know that a lot of users do, then
I'd search out Faves to Go on Kelly's site here under tweaks (I'm doing it
for you this time) http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp.htm
majority of them work in Vista) http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm
and go to http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/regs_edits/favetogo.zip
and simply unzip
this and you'll have your faves come up as hyperlinks on an IE page and the
access is much much quicker. PC Mag charges about $25 for this but here it
Another excellent app for fast access to faves hyperlinked and all listed
that load immediately is called Favorites Home Page but it might take
searching a web archive to still find it. Faves to Go is pretty equivalent.
However, to take the next step from Rick's comment, I think you'll have the
access you need if you simply right click the folder>properties>security tab
and highlight a user profile and click add>type in the next box the last
term in the file path of that particular profile> put checks in the boxes
for permissions you want>ok>close and reopen.
