3)      At this point you can edit the folder list as you wish. Follow the steps below for whichever function you want to do. (Deletion, rearranging, adding a folder, etc.)

4)      Press “Done” on the upper right hand corner of the bookmark box to finish.

Adding a Folder

Creating Subfolders

    This is great except that it doesn’t answer the one question I had about this subject — how to move a saved bookmark into one of the folders you’ve created! Anyone?
