Hi, if I try and save a bookmark in the desktop IE it will save if I just save it into 'Favorites". However if I try to save it into a folder I have created such as 'Guitar" I get the message "Unable to create <shortcut>" "Access is denied". If I save it into Favorites and then open Organize Favorites and move it into the Guitar folder (for example) it moves there fine. :sweat:

I am using an administrator account and when you hit 'Add a favorite' a box appears with the URL and the option to 'create in'. If I try to create it in any folder I am denied permission. If I create it just in the Favorites list it works, but then I have to open organize favorites, highlight it and then hit Move and put it into a folder :pt1cable: 

If it is unclear, the folder I am trying to save it in is also in Favorites, it is just a way of organizing the favorites. I am not trying to save it to another folder 'outside' of IE.
