When you have any program that you use, whether it's on a regular basis or once in a while, you want to make sure you're getting the most out of the program. This very same notion is the truth for when you are using Internet Explorer 11! One of the best things that you will be able to use in Internet Explorer 11 is your Favorites Bar and the Favorites Center! While it is something that is great, many may not know how to get the most out of using the Favorites Bar and the Favorites Center. Here are two surprisingly easy steps that you can use to make sure you are getting the most out of your favorites in Internet Explorer 11!
In Internet Explorer you have a feature that is called your Favorites… this is where you can save a website that you visit frequently or one that you have seen something that you really like and want to get back to with ease. While many may know that they can save websites they like to their favorites, they may not know that you can access these favorites by using the Favorites Bar… this is a special folder that you have access to. The Favorites bar folder is where you can show all the folders and websites that you have saved… this bar is located at the top of the webpage, just under the address bar. When you open your Internet Explorer your Favorites bar is hidden by default, so you would have to enable it to use it. This is easy to do… open Internet Explorer 11; once you have that open you need to right click on the top portion of the Internet Explorer window. When you do that a box will appear; scroll down to the favorites bar and click on it. Doing this will allow the Favorites bar to be right beneath your tabs so you can access the folders and sites you have saved with ease!
You can also access your Favorites Center in Internet Explorer 11 with ease as well. This center is very useful because this is where you are able to organize your favorite web pages and you can access them here as well. Also you can make the option to pin it to the browser window so you can use it as an extended Favorites Bar; this is another way that you can access all of your favorite pages! So, in order for you to enable the Favorites Center you have to click the small star that you see at the top right hand corner of your screen. Once you click on this star you will see the Favorites Center appear. Once this is done you need to Pin the Favorites center… this is done by clicking on the small green arrow that will be at the upper left hand corner of the pop up box. Your favorites center will show up next to the space that loads the web pages. Now you can get to your favorites center from here.
