How do i make bookmark folders on windows xp


Bookmarks are used in Mozilla Firefox, Opera & Google Chrome browsers. Internet Explorer uses Favorites. In Internet Explorer you just click browse to the webpage you want to save as a favorite then click Favorites, then click Add To Favorites and a popup window will appear with an option to create a new folder. In Mozilla Firefox browse to the page you want to bookmark, then click Bookmarks, then click Bookmark This Page. A popup window appears and you can select the drop down arrow next to Unsorted Bookmarks or the Gray Arrow just to the right of the unsorted bookmarks arrow. Both of these arrows are for folders and when you select either one you will see an option for a New Folder. In Opera browse to the webpage you want to bookmark, then click Opera at the top of the in the left hand corner and it will expand giving you options. Click Bookmarks, then click Bookmark Page and a popup window will appear allowing you to create a New Folder. In Google Chrome click on the wrench in the right hand corner at the top of the browser window. Then click Bookmarks, then Bookmarks Manager. When Bookmarks Manager opens you will see it has an Organize option, and when you click it you will see an Add Folder option. But the Add Folder option will be grayed out and unusable unless you highlight one of the folders already existing under the Bookmarks column.

Speed Up Windows XP in 5 Steps


Most of the times we observe that our system seems to gradually slow down. Here below i am listing five basic and easy steps
that can help you speed up your Windows XP computer.

1. Clear the Prefetch Folder :The Prefetch Folder contains files that keep getting stored on your computer whenever you launch any program or application. Deleting these files clears up space on your system that might have caused the slow down. Here is how you need to go about it.
Click Start..click Run..type Prefetch and click ok. The prefetch folder will open up. Press Ctrl and A together. This highlights the entire contents of the folder. Press the Delete key on the keyboard and confirm the deletion. Once done close the prefetch folder window. Now right click on the recycle bin icon on the desktop and right click and select empty recycle
bin and then confirm the deletion.

2. Disable Startup Items: Certain programs get initiated in the background as soon as your system starts causing the system to slow down. These programs are actually not required on startup but because they get initiated it affects the system performance. Here below i am listing the steps to take care of this issue. Please note this step is very effective and
enhances your system startup speed significantly.
Click Start...click Run...type msconfig and click Ok.
The System Configuration utility window will open.
Click on the Startup tab on the top right. Click on the disable all button. Once done, in the list above, you will see many options with checkboxes. Please check any option that indicates your antivirus program software and internet service provider.
Click Apply and Ok. Please restart the system once.Once the system reboots you will get a message coming up saying "You have used the system configuration utility...." Please check the option below that says" Do not show this message again" and click OK.

3.Clear the Temporary Files Folder: Certain temporary files get created as a cache of our activity on the system. Clearing these files from time to time also improves the system speed. Below are the steps for the same.
Click Start..Click Run...Type %temp% and click Ok.The temporary files folder opens.Press Ctrl and A together. This highlights the entire contents of the folder. Press the Delete key on the keyboard and confirm the deletion. Once done close the folder window. Now right click on the recycle bin icon on the desktop and right click and select empty recycle bin
and then confirm the deletion.

4.Clear Cookies and Temp Internet Files: As you browse the internet the images of the pages you view get saved on the system occupying space on the system. Clearing these files increases your system performance while on the internet.
Open Internet Explorer. Click on the Tools menu on top right. Click Internet Options. Click on delete button to delete cookies, files and browsing history. Click Apply and Click Ok.

5.Scan our system for infection: Your system might run slow in case its infected with virus, spyware, malware, adware, trojans etc. Here below i am listing a tool that you can download and run on the system Its free of cost and is very effective. It scans your system and cleans up any infection. Click on the below link to download the tool. The link that opens up also has a tutorial on running the tool in case you face any difficulty.
Download Combofix Tool


With the above 5 steps, your system speed should surely get enhanced.


If you find the information shared by me in the above tip useful, please do rate the tip.
All the Best!!!

When i try to play farmville or watch a video on my e-machines laptop, the page will say it is loaded but nothing with be in the screen where it should be showing my farm or my video. This just started...


It's probably just due to poor connectivity or slow internet connection. Try it again later and see if it's still there.

If it's still there, Try deleting browsing history in your browser.
If you're using Internet Explorer (IE),
- Open up any IE window
- Go to SAFETY>DELETE BROWSING HISTORY
- And then restart your computer.

You can also try RESETTING Internet Explorer. It will put all of the IE's settings to the default but it will not erase your bookmarks.
- Just open up any IE window
- Go to TOOLS> INTERNET OPTIONS> A window will popup.
- Go to ADVANCED Tab and click RESET.

You can also try using SYSTEM RESTORE to go back to a date where you were able to use your computer normally.
- Just click START
- Type SYSTEM RESTORE on SEARCH PROGRAMS AND FILES Bar
- Hit ENTER and then just follow the steps.

If that doesn't work, there may be a third party software that's causing the issue or it could be a virus attack.

Hope this helps.

Cannot update unsuccessful pop up keeps coming up saying there is no internet connection found please reconnect to internet immediately- my internet connection works. any idea? whenever I try to use...


Could be connected.

From inside Windows, go to the run command off the Start Menu and type "cmd" without the quotes.

In the command window that follows type:
chkdsk /f c:
hit enter.

Windows will tell you there are open handles, etc and do you want to run this on the next boot. Answer Yes and reboot.

Then try again.

The second cause if your default browser is not IEplorer. You can change this in by opening IExplorer and go to the Options, Connections and tell it you are on a network.

Any questions or need for more clarification just ask by commenting back to me in the comment box below.
