This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

rats, I went to correct the spelling and it got migrated here in between times, where I don't have enough rep... :( – Benjol Jul 21 '09 at 6:50

Everyone is pointing at the star for favorite questions. But the OP specifically said "Answers". It seems to me that occasionally I've tripped over an answer that itself was worth remembering, perhaps even more than the question itself.

This most often happens on those large survey/fun questions where an interesting answer might be buried on page 3...

Perhaps there should be a small start next to the link | flag set of actions....

Perhaps this answer should itself become a feature-request question...

Click on the Star next to a question to mark it as a favorite.

You can then go to your profile and click on the "Favorites" tab to see answers you have marked.

In the future, there is a website specifically for questions about SO, Meta SO.

Making a question a favorite will not mark a particular answer. In most cases where there are only a few it will be enough, but in some cases that has a lot of answers and you don't want to save the high ranking one, this will not help. But it should be enough in most cases. – googletorp Jul 21 '09 at 6:53
Thanks I'm new to this. Will remember that in the future. I can't mark this as answered any more :( – monkeyp Jul 21 '09 at 6:53

If you clicked on any question, you'd see there is a big STAR there to click on, to put into your 'Favorites' tab.

Yes - you make it a favourite by pressing the star under the question score. You can find your favourites on your profile page.

Use Google toolbar and use SO while logged into your google account.

You can then press the BlueStar to bookmark your pages on SO. Later wherever you install your google toolbar and log-in, you will retain all your bookmarks wherever you go.
