Create custom names for docked IE URLs Apps
When you drag a link from the browser address line in Internet Explore to the dock, it uses the page's name as the dock mouseover name. For example, I pulled the address over, but its name was 'login'. Not gonna fly. I found that if you save the site as a favorite first, you can edit the name and then pull it into the Dock from the bookmark window. It now has the customized name when moused over.

Why not conserve Dock Space?
Authored by: iroot on May 09, '02 12:00:12AM

Neat, but to conserve Dock space, I just drag the url to the explorer bar. This puts the url into your Toolbar Favorites folder.

The other thing you can do is drag a url-linked graphic (like the MacOSXHints at the top of this page) to IE\'s button bar.

Sorry if these have previously been given; I\'m kinda new to this forum.
