How can I use the Links feature in Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 5.0 and later?

A. IE contains a Links toolbar that provides links to Internet shortcuts that you store in the Links folder under the Favorites menu. By placing your favorite folders and shortcuts in the Links folder rather than storing them in the root Favorites menu, you can gain faster access to those items.

To enable IE's Links toolbar, go to the View menu, select Toolbars, and select Links. You can then drag the Links toolbar into place so that it appears as a separate bar under the Address bar.

In Windows XP, you can also display the Links content on the taskbar by right-clicking the taskbar and selecting Links from the Toolbars menu. You can then either expand the Links section of the taskbar to see your links or you can just display the word "Links" in the taskbar and click that text to see a list of your links.
