    Guys - FYI - I found this tutorial:

    I dont' know which version Mark H. Walker is using - maybe a beta version,
    his layout doesn't look like the final version..?

    But what I'm curious to show you guys is if you browse down to the
    paragraph: 'To add a webpage to your list of favorites' and have a look under
    '2.' - you will see that he has a couple of options available - which I
    certainly do not have in my version of IE7 (7.0.5730.11):
    Make available offline and Less options..

    Would anyone know if he is showing the final version in his tutorial..?

  2. Open %windir%\Offline Web Pages and use its Add to Favorites command.

    If you look at the date it was written it is pretty clear that he must have
    been using an early beta version.

    Open %windir%\Offline Web Pages and use its Add to Favorites command.
    What are you talking about..?
    I'm - like many, many other IE7 users extremly disappointed and considering
    switching to FireFox - due to the fact that all my favorites expands when I
    want to add a new site..
    So I don't really need a reply like yours..which I don't see the purpose of
    - and don't understand how to use - explain that command please..
    I want to be able to do this easy and convenient - from within IE7..
    If MS cannot find out how to do this - they will loose a dedicated user in
    me.. And I'm talking 25 YEARS+ of dedication..!

    I, too, have been a Microsoft user since the DOS days. I
    hated IE7, and also tried the Firefox solution. I liked Firefox, but
    not as much as IE6. I used the method in my sig below to roll back to
    IE6, and it is once again my default browser. I don't regret
    downloading Firefox. I use it to check websites if something out of
    the ordinary happens in IE6.

    If you don't like Internet Explorer 7, and want to go back to IE6,
    go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs.
    Find IE7, highlight it, and click "Remove". That will take you
    back to IE6. It worked perfectly for me, for which I am grateful
    to Microsoft.

    Don't mistake my outburst - it's not like I don't like MS - I'm happy with it
    - run several servers etc.
    My disappointment is merely this single feature in IE7 - or missing - with
    the favorites folders expanding - not being able to collapse them..
    I still find IE7 excellent - especially I like the tabbed browsing, Find on
    this page, etc.
    What I mean with MS loosing a dedicated user is only regarding IE7 - where I
    strongly consider to switch to FireFox as my main browser.
    I would sincerely like to stay with IE7 :)
