    On my old WinXP system I was able to drag in IE8 a bookmarked Favorites to a Favorite sub folder.
    During dragging onto the target favorite subfolder this subfolder opened automatically and I could
    inserts it to the new subfolder.

    Trying the same on a new Win7 system with IE8 the Favorites subfolder does not expand cascadingly itself.
    If I release the dragged Favorites on top of a subfolder this Favorite is placed just above the subfolder
    on the same hierarchy level.

    How can I enable auto-expanding of fovoriates folders on dragging?

    How can I move Favorites to lower hierarchy levels otherwise?

    Slow response, but...
    Do this from Windows Explorer. Browse to your favorites folder at Computer>
    Local Disk (C)> Users> your account> Favorites. Create a shortcut to this
    folder on the desktop to make this operation and other Favorites organizing
    work easier in the future.

    Hope this helps,
    Don
