I was using google, then went to windows 10. lost my star icon for favorites and the info. also lost my e internet icon.
Tech Support Specialist: Robert M., Consultant replied 2 years ago

the e for the internet explorer is gone because windows 10 replaced it with the new edge

there are a few things you can do about the bookmarks

try logging in to google at

https://accounts.google.com/ServiceLogin?elo=1

try holding ctrl and shift down and hitting B

and this one gets more complicated but you can try these steps

  1. Enter "chrome://flags" into the URL bar, and hit enter.
  2. Search for Enable Enhanced Bookmarks option and in the pull-down menu, select "Disable."
  3. Close and restart Chrome.
  4. After Re-launch, the "bookmarks star" should be back where it belongs on the right end of the url/search bar

or you can try just reinstalling the chrome

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
