If your like me you have quite a few Photoshop sites that you like to frequent. So here's a tip to quickly get to those sites without fumbling through your Favorites menu.

First, you need to be taking advantage of the Links toolbar, if your not using the Links toolbar you'll need to Right click on the Menu bar and click on the Links option. Then to add shortcuts to the Links bar just click and drag the IE icon in the address bar to the Links bar (optionally, you can just choose Add to Favorites and create the shortcut in the Links folder). You'll need to Rename the shortcut (because there always about a mile long) by Right clicking it and choose Rename to something shorter, try to keep it one word or two at the most.

Ok, when you click the "Add to Favorites" to add a website; in the dialog box that follows-- in the "Create in" field choose "Links" from the drop down menu, then click New Folder and Name it Photoshop.

And there you have it. You can now just drag all subsiquent websites from the address bar right into your new Photoshop folder on the Links bar.

Here is a screenshot of what it looks like:
