OK, thanks. ***** bar are you trying to set up? Do you mean when you are on the Internet and want shortcuts on the Favorites bar to go to your Favorite sites or something else?

Hi, it looks like Josh has stepped away from the computer so I'll be happy to assist you with this.

File Explorer is Windows' folder structure, it's not a web browser. Some common web browsers are Google Chrome, Firefox and Edge.

Can you tell me what icon you click on to get online? What does the icon look like?

I click on the blue ë".
Tech Support Specialist: ChrisC, Computer Enthusiast replied 4 months ago

Okay, thank you.

Since you said you're running Windows 10, I'm going to assume that you're using the Microsoft Edge browser. If that's the case, try following these steps:

1. In the upper-right corner click on the Settings icon (it looks like three small dots).

2. Click Settings at the very bottom of the drop-down menu. This should open the settings panel.

3. On the settings panel, about halfway down you should see an option that says Favorites Bar, and then under that it says, "Show Favorites Bar." Go ahead and slide that to the On position and then your Favorites bar should appear!

In the unlikely event that you're actually running Internet Explorer instead of Edge--both browsers have a blue E icon--then you'll want to follow these steps to bring up the Favorites bar:

1. Hold down the Alt key on your keyboard and press the V key. This should bring up the View menu at the top.

2. In the View menu, go to Toolbars --> Favorites Bar. Once you click on Favorites Bar, it should pop up at the top.

That should do it for you! Let me know if you have any other questions on this.

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
