Organizing the Favorite Links panel in a dialog box

    I'm trying to organize the "Favorite Links" section of Navigation Pane, and
    I'm getting frustrated. When I'm looking at a Folder Window in Explorer, all
    the icons in the Favorite Links portinon of the navigation pane appear in the
    order that I want -- with my favorite favorite links showing up on the very
    top of the stack. However, when I use the OPEN command from within a
    Microsoft Office 2007 app such as Word, there are several new "favorite
    links" that show up in the panel -- "Templates," for example, and "recently
    changed" -- and they're sitting ON TOP of my own "favorite links." Since I
    never use "templates" and "recently changed," I'd rather either get rid of
    them or push them down in the stack. It's easy to push them down to a lower
    position in the stack, but I can't find a way to keep them permanently. They
    keep reappearing at the top of the stack, even if I've pushed them down lower
    earlier that day.

    I know this ins't the Office discussion group, but this seems to be a
    Vista-related issue. This problem does not exist in Word 2007 when running
    under XP. Any thoughts on how to keep the favorite links panel filled with
    my, uh, real favorites? After all, they're supposed to be MY favorites,
    aren't they?

    Hi Mark,

    The "Favorite Links" are located here, "C:\Users\(your
    username)\Links". Perhaps you can sort it the way you like from there.

    You can see more on Favorite Links here.

    This is part of my frustration: I've got the links folder organized with
    ONLY my favorite links. The ones that keep creeping up to the top of the
    stack when I'me opening or saving docs from Office are NOT in the links
    folder. I don't know where they come from or how to make them behave the way
    the other links do.

    Any other thoughts out there?
