office 365 - Access 2013

My OS is win 7 64 bit and I use Access 2013.  Somehow my favorites in IE always seem to get messed up, sometimes it shows, sometimes it is hidden.  I am thinking of using a Access database to store all my favorites showing the URL, the description , etc.  is there any sample database out there I could use to copy rather than re inventing the wheel.  Thank u.

May I recommend you switch to a real browser ... Google Chrome ... and avoid this hassle ?

I have not seen such a template but it won't be hard to build.  Create a table with four columns:
RecID: autonumber (pk)
Group: a way to group the favorites
URL: the actual URL string
NiceName: a nice name if you want one

Then create a form that lets you manage them.  Set the DisplayAsHyperlink property of the URL field to Yes.  This will make the field look like a hyperlink.  To make it act like one, add code to the double-click event of the URL control:
Application.FollowHyperlink Me.txtURL

You could use the click event which would more closely simulate an actual hyperlink but that will interfere with editing since you would never be able to simply click into the control to change its value.  You would have to tab into it which selects the entire field, you could then type over it.  Your choice.
