If you use the Internet on a regular basis, you probably have accumulated alarge collection of miscellaneous bookmarks.To avoid the hassle of scouring your entire collection to find one specific bookmark—which could make finding a needle in a haystack seem easy—you can separate and organize them with a few simple techniques:

account. For example, if your account is named Bob, then doubleclick

    to store your different types of bookmarks.
