Organizing websites Sign In/Join

I do well to get on the internet, I don't know much about a computer. Is there a way to save and organize the websites I have in my favorites? I have so many that it's hard to find the one I want when I want it. I have to look through the whole list. I'd like to have one place dedicated to decor, one for recipes, on for misc., etc. Thanks

Maybe a site like this could be connected with the SmartHome. It's and excellent suggestion. There's a lot of talented individuals who could handle it. Carly K. who presents the Smarthome is explaining how she uses her phone to organize her life on Howdini. She'd be a great candidate for this, don't you think?

Your computer should have this information. If not, my hub refers me to You Tube to get explanations.

My other favorite places to go is Revision & Techpodcasts.com. I enjoy keeping ahead of my young adult children. They keep asking me how I'm knowing this stuff. lol Let's just say...I have a crib sheet with these sites. As soon as they get my devices, I'm sunk. They'll be keeping up with me and surpassing me, I'm sure of it. Oh well I gave it a good Mom's try!

Within Book marks, I can create as many labeled folders as I want, and add/place websites within these folders (random or alphabetized). Stand alone websites are there on the side bar too, but organizing them into folders sounds like a good plan for you too?

I put everything, except 9 websites on Pinterest, once I figured out how to do it. All my blogs went on Bloglovin, which I didn't know existed,lol.

Like Conrad stated...yes you can. When you click on Favorites scroll down and look for Organize Favorites.
You can add folders and move websites to those folders.
Quilting
Knitting
Recipes
Landscaping
Etc.

Yes, I organize them!

Go to "bookmark this page" on your tool bar. I use Mozilla so this is specific for organizing at that site.

Then you will see Name:

Folder: (at folder click and drop down to "choose".

Select new folder and name it.

For example: Gardening Sites, Kitchen Sites, etc.

You can also make folders and then organize your existing favorites into the folders. You simply click and move the favorite into the folder.

Good Luck!
