    Need Help to Set Up Bookmarks in Windows 8

    It was so easy and uncomplicated in Windows XP -- What category do I check on to set up folders (Business, Computers, Medical,etc) and then manage to get the files into them. Technology -- too many choices for this old brain!

    Sorry that you had to upgrade to Window8. I am staying on XP.

    I should add, I am using Mozilla.
    I`'ll be a maniac quilter in more ways than one before I figure all this out!

    I use Google Chrome and just select Google Bookmark. From there I can add to any folder.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    With Mozilla, (Firefox)...all you have to do is double left click on the star (it's on top of page, next to your search bar),then add a tag if you wish, or just click "done"...and it will be added.
    As for your folders, that depends on your mail service..(MSN,Yahoo, etc.)...they are all a bit different, but generally when you open your mail there should be a place where you can click on it to add a new folder, or add something to an existing folder..click around and you should find it.

    Click on the "star" at top right on my computer; then click on "add to Favorites". Then you can put the site in a listed folder or "create new folder". I have folders for "Financial", "Medical"; "Quilting", etc.

    If you are using the same browser or mail program, the method should be the same as it was before the change. Perhaps you need to right click in the blank area at the top of Firefox and add the menu bar. If you mean folders in email, you could try to find the one you are familiar with or use Yahoo or some other Internet based email that won't change when you get a new OS. I have gradually been making peace with Windows 8. I was quite annoyed with all the changes that did not seem to improve anything but just caused me to lose time trying to do the same things in a pointlessly different way. I absolutely hate the idea of "charms" cluttering up my screen when I was quite content scrolling a list of available programs and folders that I could pull up as needed. Now I'm getting used to it, but I have unwittingly on impulse signed up for the free "upgrade" to Windows 10 and I'm bracing myself for more nonsense. That's coming on July 29.
