I have been to that location befor and I do not find there any of the web pages that I chose to add to my "Favorites". Any new ideas?
Expert:  Claws224 replied 8 years ago.

Ok,

 

That is the default folder for all of your favorites, If they are not there then I assume something else is happening so could you tell me what prompted this search for them?

 

Did they disappear from your IE window?

 

Let us know

 

Thanks

I want to copy some of my favorite links to my desktop to make them easer to access.

Ok,

 

If you could open your Internet Explorer then click Favorites to open the drop down window, Find your favourite in the window and right click it, Then choose send to, Desktop (create shortcut) nd repeat those steps for each one you wish to have an icon for.

 

Let us know how you get on.

 

Thanks
