    It's probably simple, but in spite of diligent searching I can't find the
    path to a menu that allows me to change the order of my MSN(IE7) homepage
    items in their respective columns. (I want to put the most important ones
    above the rest. I can remember using such a menu that allowed moving items up
    or down, but I sure can't find it now. I keep finding MS info that refers to
    that ability, but no path to it.)

    I'd be quite grateful for any help on this.

    You can also click on the little arrow to the right of the name of the item;
    this drops down a list that includes Move and allows you to move the item up
    or down.

    Thanks, Joaneee. I assume you're referring to the <Change Details> block
    within individual column items, which indeed allows move up/move down.
    However, this block appears only in a few of the items. Most, for example
    "Quote of the Day", "AP World Headlines" do not have it. Trying to "drag"
    these items within the column doesn't work. Also, their <Properties> has no
    move option. Neither does <Change Content> at the bottom of the column. I'm
    still stuck.

    Actually, no that wasn't what I was referring to. I just added "Quote of the
    day" to my personalized MSN page. It showed up at the bottom of column 1. At
    the top of the item, it shows a - sign, then Quote of the Day, then a down
    arrow. Click the down arrow, and i get a menu: Change details, Delete, Move,
    Help. Click Move, and I can choose from Up or Right (it's already as down
    and left as it can go).

    Alternatively, I can position the cursor on the little dotted area at the
    far right of the item header, and drag the thing anywhere I like.

    I am using IE7, with a customized MSN home page (MyMSN ). Don't know if
    that is your situation?

    Thanks again for sticking with me Joanee.

    Not finding the markings you mention made me suspicious, so I left my
    Firefox browser (with homepage) and returned to Microsoft's. Yep,
    there your referenced markings are.

    I had only recently moved to FF and liked some of its features, but this
    (apparent) limitation is too much, so I'll go back.

    Again, thank you much.
