    Is there a free .txt file utility/editor/script/whatever that will automatically remove all duplicate line entries from large .txt documents?

    Something created dupes of every URL in my extensive IE Favorites folder. I fixed it by deleting the Favorites folder contents and importing a previously stored bookmarks file. I lost a few recent URL entries as a consequence, however.

    sorry if i have misunderstood what you are looking for, but if it's something that will delete duplicates in your bookmarks you can use AM-DeadLink it will work for afew browsers including Mozilla, Firefox and IE.

    i did take a screenshot, but the manage attachments isn't working for me at the moment. i will try again in a minute :)

    I think that's exactly what I am looking for. I already had it in my program files - buried among a hundred other apps, etc. - but had forgotten all about it.

    Does it also find and remove dupes from ordinary .txt files? It looks like it does.

    Thanks for the link and reminder. :)
