Maybe I'm just blind and can't see it, but how do I get to all the threads I have saved in folders?

I think they all got unfoldered and moved to the Watched list.

It may seem awkward and inefficient (especially if you used the folders to track helpful posts), but the board has a Bookmark functionality that you can use to tag particular posts. And then you can search your bookmarks to quickly find the desired post.

At the top right of each post, there is a bookmark icon. Click the icon and you can enter personal tags for it.

Then to search your bookmarks, click your profile button at the top right, select the Bookmarks tab and you can filter for specific text

Bookmarks are really great.
One addition to @starl's comment above.

Use the labels to categorize your bookmarks, not as the message (title) of the bookmark.
For example, I label all VBA related questions by using VBA label (and VBA pops up next time I try to add another VBA related bookmark - those are saved as your personal labels for bookmarks, then you can simply select when typing in the Labels box):

This way, I can quickly filter my bookmarks in bookmarks page.

And yes, just as you would guess, you can use multiple labels for a bookmark. It is kind of "using folders", except more efficient. I really love it.

Hi I came to this forum by an accident as one of my post moved here. This post really interest me. Was it possible to save your own posts in folders? That would be great idea to organized them and to search them. I read the answer that Watched list is the answer, but is it possible to save my own posts or maybe other users post in folders? to categorize them? Thank you very much

Thank you Tracy and Suat. That additional information helped.

Let me understand this. If I had saved a thread in the prior version of this forum, then that is now located in the watched threads which date back over 10 years of activity. If I wish to find those dozen or so threads, I need to filter through 183 pages of watched threads and then book mark them. I would have thought that during the migration that you folks at MrE may have given some priority to identifying those that were in the former "Special Saved Threads." Just for the record, Starl, I am not happy with this scenario.

We are working on this. I expect it can be done in a week or so.

Thank you. I would hope that once this option is available you would post back on this thread.
