Re: Microsoft's Own Security Chief Says: STOP using Internet Explorer


When you start to make a bookmark, if you tab once from the name field, you get to a field where you can specify the folder the bookmark will be saved in.  I don't remember if it is identified as a combo box, but that is how it functions. 
Up and down arrow through the choices.  If you want to add the book mark to the Internet Explorer folder, stop on that folder.  Don't press enter because I'm not sure what that would do.  You can experiment and see if you wish.
If you shift tab back to the name field and press enter, the book mark will be saved in the specified folder. 
You may change the name of the bookmark whenever you want, before or after you specify the folder.

That's exactly what I unfortunately assumed.

JAWS doesn't let me know I'm in an edit field either.

I tend to do that, but that one passed me by.

As far as finding a book mark after you save it even if you don't know

Can you specify a folder for a bookmark? I of course wouldn't want my
IE bookmarks separated from the ones I make in Chrome, since their
directory structures would be intentionally identical.

That's very good to know.
