On the Microsoft Money menu, under Favorites, there are three options, to show favorite accounts, favorite
reports and favorite web sites.
Adding favorite accounts and reports is relatively straightforward. For accounts,
you need just designate the account as a favorite in the account settings page. With reports, adding it to your favorites is

you for the name of a folder in which you want to store your favorites. This folder will appear

Once you create this folder, it will appear in your Internet Explorer favorites, and the favorite
you added will be seen in the dropdown menu. This can then be selected directly from the menu.
Because the favorites you may add are also stored in Internet Explorer, you can also select them from that
program and view them in a normal browser. They will not be available in other browsers, such as Firefox and
Once this folder is present in Internet Explorer, it is possible to add more financial favorites
just by adding them to this folder in IE. They will be automatically seen in Microsoft Money.
