I like to delete temporary internet files and cookies fairly regularly. BUT, I don't want to erase my psychobabble cookies and the cookies from a couple other sites I visit frequently. Because, as you know, when the cookies are gone, I get the new tags on every single message, and it makes it cumbersome to scroll through messages for new ones.
My solution thus far has been to open the temp/cookies files, select all, and then use the control button and the mouse to unselect certain cookies. But this is also rather cumbersome, and not always accurate. There are often several cookies from the same site and I have a hard time knowing if I would need to keep all of them, or the most recent, or what. Plus sometimes I miss some and they get deleted with the others.
My question is this: Is there a way to get my computer to put certain cookies in a different folder from all the other cookies--a kind of 'special cookies and special temporary internet files" folder? That way I could keep the "special" ones and delete the rest more efficiently.
Or any other suggestions?
