Maybe i misunderstood your question.
You could create a simple text file with two columns and read it from line to line with simple Open statements.

I thinks thats creating bookmarks which is useful. But I don't think it shows me how to read existing favorites.

I want to read in a bunch of bookmarks and then sort them, deleteing duplicates, regrouping them into different catergories etc. I don't know how to read in the file and get the info from the bookmark.

well, here we go:
we could use a csv file (comma separated text file), you could read and write to it as if it was a table from a database.
Here is a sample code to do it.

it is for excel but it could be easily translated to VB.

I can hold all the data in a multi dimension array for sorting, why do you suggest Excel? (Puzzled???)

How do I get all the url and shortcut names from my favorites folder in the first place. You've shown me how to create on a write one, but not how to read one. Or I have missed it in that vb.net code you posted at the start?

Thanks
