    In IE8, there is a Favorite Bar at the top of the screen. How can I delete a
    favorite from this Favorite Bar without deleting it from the Favorite List?
    If I delete it from the Favorite Bar, it goes to the recycle bin. If I do a
    restore of this item from the recycle bin, it will put it back at the bottom
    of the Favorites List. I am just looking for a way to clear out some of the
    favorites now in the Favorite Bar without deleting them from the main
    Favorites list. What am I missing? Charles Ranheim.

    Move it from the Favorites Bar to another Favorites folder.

    The Favorites Bar in IE 8 is really just the Links Bar from previous
    versions of Internet Explorer, with a few new tricks added.

    How do you suggest I move the items out of the Favorites Bar? I have tried
    to drag, delete, cut & Paste. The only way I have found is to delete the
    item, which puts it in the Recycle Bin. I then restore from the Recycle Bin
    and it goes back to the bottom of my main Favorites list. There must be an
    easier way to manage the items in the Favorites Bar. Charles Ranheim

  4. As Leonard mentioned the Favorties Bar is just a new label for the
    Links subdirectory. So, open the Favorites\Links directory in an
    Explorer window and drag-move the link where you want it.
    E.g. press Alt-a,right-click on Favorites Bar, Explore and click Folders
    to see both the Links directory's items and its context within the Favorites

    If you find yourself doing that a lot you could create a keyboard shortcut
    for that Explorer window. E.g. drag that icon from the Address bar to
    your Desktop, right-click Properties, Shortcut key: L and you then could
    open it exactly the same way at any time by pressing Ctrl-Alt-L.
