Favorites Adding

Before i downloaded this new version i was very content with the fact that next to my favorites star button another star button with a plus for easy adding without having to open the annoying favorites menu for adding. Giving that option back to us, well me since i loved the option so much, would be absolutely great. And no i don't like that new option that goes with the star button that has the arrow, hate it. I would like to put the adding favorites button back into my toolbar, not going to the menu.

Favorites Not Working

I have ie8, vista, for some reason, all my favorites are no longer working. Meaning. They all display on my favorites tab, but when i click on it, nothing happens. My history tab works, all the links open up as they should, however, the favorites do not work.

I have tried to restore ie default settings, i resorted back to ie7, i reloaded ie8. I have exported the links (all look fine on export) i have deleted all of them, i re-loaded them and no luck. I click on them, select the arrow to the right, and nothing.

Favorites Missing

Over the last 2-3 weeks all the links within ie8 favorites have disappeared. In fact when first clicking on favorites the following error message appears:

"Location is not available - c:users*name*musicfavoritesfavorites refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be in a hard drive on this computer, or on a network. Check to make sure that the disk is properly inserted, or that you are connected to the internet on your network, and then try again. If it still cannot be located, the information might have been move to a different location"

Subsequent clicking on favorites within ie8 then just comes up completely blank. I can find all the links within a favorites folder in the music folder location. I don't know why the favorites have been moved and how to rectify this. Any advice would be appreciated.

The problem is on a laptop running windows vista home premium service pack 2.

Ie8 Favorites Do Not Work

I have the following problems with favorites in ie8:

Adding a favorite creates it twice (once with the url as name, once with the page title as name)
Clicking on any favorite in ie does nothing (no error, no feedback)

Favorites can be deleted without problem
Opening the url file in explorer opens a print window (the print is empty)
Reinstalling ie8 had no effect and no spyware was detected by multiple scanners

Anybody have any clue what could be the cause of this?

Disabled norton sp(_ product) and still have same issue. Disabled ie add-ons, same issue. There are no error messages or warning; as seen in vista. Just nothing happens. Ideas, other than reloading with xp pro?

Favorites Not Working In Ie8

I have an hp pavillion running vista. Recently the "favorites" feature stopped working. All my bookmarks are still listed but they do not work (and the little icons before the text are now just empty boxes). If i try and add a favorite, it won't be added. I have not added any new programs that i am aware of. Favorites just suddenly stopped working. The favorites folder still exists in my users directory. The registry address is %userprofile%. I have uninstalled and then reinstalled ie 8. I have reset it. I have run it without add ons. I have scanned the computer for viruses using norton 360. Nothing has worked.

Favorites Icons (favicons)

For each saved favorite in the drop down, a right-click to properties, then change icon, goes to a file containing only five preloaded generic other icons to choose from. Location: c:windowssystem32url.dll

So i want to design my own icons and tag them to various favorites (also perhaps on desktop). I also want to store them somewhere (if possible, add them to the same preloaded "library" at c:windowssystem32url.dll).

Can i do this? How?

Where Are Email And Favorites Stored?

My new computer crashed and is being replaced. I dumped the contents of the original hard drive to an external drive so i can retrieve some contents. I wish to retrieve my email contact list, my emails - in all their different folders, my internet websites and cookies which has all my logins and such. I wasn't able to do an easy transfer under the circumstances. Is it possible to locate these files and just copy them to the new setup? I would hate to loose all this information.

Saving Of Favorites Problem

In win 7-64, ie8, everytime i save a favorite, it saves two lines to the folder. One entry is the name i gave it. That entry will not open the site. The second entry is the complete link  it does open the site. For example:

Saved the following with the name i gave it:
Kitchen cabinet finishing

The second line, never adjacent to the first saved line was:
Kitchen-cabinets-and-hardware.com-kitchen-cabinet-finishing.html

The entry of the name i gave it is useless.

How can i solve this problem?

Import Favorites Lost Their Icons

I recently installed a new workstation running windows xp sp3 and ie7 (as was my previous workstation1). Can't go to ie8 because it is not certified to run with my company's enterprise software.

I exported my ie favorites from the old pc and then imported them on the new one; all the icons for my favorite sites have changed to generic ones. Why did the icons disappear and how can i get them back to stay? I have visited some of the sites and sometimes the icon comes back and other times it doesn't. Also, the icons don't always remain. Sometimes, for no apparent reason when i launch ie, some of them are back to generic again.

Change Width Of Favorites Toolbar

When i open my favorites toolbar, it appear on the left side of my screen (where it should), but only as a narrow sliver. When i drag my cursor over the right edge of the favorites tool bar i do get a double-headed arrow, but it wont let me drag the favorites window to give a wider column-width.

Also, when i try to 'click' the double-arrow on the toolbar's right edge, the right edge of the toolbar disappears and/or shifts to the left edge of the explores window (so i'm not sure if i'm actually selecting or 'clicking' on anything) - when i let go of the mouse button, the right edge of the favorites toolbar returns to its too-narrow config. Any suggestions? I'm also not sure how/why my favorites toolbar shrank to its present too-narrow column-width (i don't think i set it that narrow - if i need it that narrow, i just turn it off)

Office 2010 Favorites Feature

I'm looking for a couple features in office 2010 (just upgraded from office 2003). The first features is saving favorites from excel and word. In 2003 i would save a file link from the network or my hard drive as a favorite in internet explorer. Thus clicking the favorite in i.e. Would open the excel or word file on the network drive. The second feature i'm looking for is how to modify and save an attachment from an email without sending it or doing a save as to the hard drive. In 2003 you could open a file and it save it without having to do a save as. Hopefully this makes sense. Am running windows 7 pro 32bit on a new system.

Delete Favorites Bar Folder

How do i delete the favorites bar folder? I'm trying to delete the 'favorites bar' folder from my bookmarks list in internet explorer 8, as it is redundant. I do not currently, and will never use it, and i also do not want it there. However, every time i delete it, it comes back a few minutes later. I've disabled the favorites bar via group policy editor, and i've tried a suggestion i found of setting the corresponding folder to hidden via windows explorer, then deleting the folder from my bookmarks, but it reappears a few minutes later. Is there any way of getting rid of this folder permanently?

Cannot Delete Folders In Ie8 Favorites

I have a new hp pavilion desktop (6gb ram, 1tb hd) which came loaded w/ windows 7 and ie8, version 8. 0. 7600. 16385, 64 bit edition. I'm trying to clear all folders and favorites from favorites so that i can import a fresh set from another browser. All went well until the last few folders. When i try to delete these, i get the following message: "could not find this item. This is no longer located in c:usersferdfavorites. Verify the item's location and try again. " This is followed by the name of the folder and the date created.

I followed all of the steps, including those in the link to the microsoft kb article, in the moderator's reply to w mayberry's post of february 20, 2010, "i've been having a problem organizing my favorites file" because it seemed like a similar problem. However, none of those steps have worked for me.

Just to make things more interesting, i got the following error message in trying to delete one of the folders (unsorted bookmarks): "an unexpected error is keeping you from deleting the folder. If you continue to receive this error, you can use the error code to search for help with this problem. Error 0x80070091: the directory is not empty" i searched on this forum for this error code, but got "no results found". I have no other problems with ie8. It works fine. This issue is more of an annoyance.

History And Favorites Disappeared From Ie8

For no reason that i can fathom, ie8 has stopped displaying a short list of history and favorites in the drop-down address bar. Before today it would have a short list of 12 recent sites that i've visited, then a favorites heading and 5 sites from my favorites with an option to expand to more, then the history heading with 5 sites and the option to expand the list. Now i just get the 12 recent sites with no history or favorites headings at all.

I have tried unchecking the auto-complete options, closing the browser, restarting the computer, restarting ie8 and rechecking them (including favorites and history) and i just get the same result. I also ran ie8 without addons and confirmed that this is happening without an addon causing the problem. I liked being able to quickly click on one of my favorites from the drop-down menu (i kept my top 5 at the top of the list and so they were easily accessible), and i'd like to get this functionality back.

Will i have to completely reinstall ie8 in order to do so? As far as i'm aware nothing has changed on my computer between last night and today to have caused this. I think adobe updated, but as i mentioned i ran ie8 without any adobe addons and it still had the same issue.

Ie8 Won't Let Me Add New Favorites

I have ie 8 running on vista (w sp2) on a dell xps laptop. Just recently i found that i cannot add new favorites either to the favorites menu or the favorites toolbar. I can drag a link to the desktop and it will stick there, but after dragging one to the favorites toolbar, i can watch while the new link simply disappears. Likewise, when i click "add to favorites" on the menu, all the actions will take place, even to the new favorite appearing on the menu for a second but then it vanishes. There are no error messages when any of this happens. My old favorites are still there on the bar and the menu and work fine.

I have not been able to find anything about this problem elsewhere. I imagine it is a problem with a setting but i can't imagine which one. I have delete a lot of items from my favorites folder thinking it might be a storage problem but that was no help.

Favorites Doesn't Display Items In Folder

Every so often, for no reason i can determine, ie8 refuses to display the bookmarks inside one or more - but not all - of the folders under favorites. Usually it is a folder i have recently selected a bookmark from, but not always. To fix this, i need to log out of ie8 completely and then reopen it. I can also double-click on the folder name under favorites, which will open a display box and i can select the bookmark i want from there. Any idea what causes this problem and how to remedy it?

Clicking On Links

When i try to click on a link, it doesn't go anywhere. I especially have this problem when i'm on my emails. Also, when i go to pogo.com to play games, i cannot get into the room to play the game.

I need to know why i'm having this problem and what can be done to fix this problem. It has only started happening since i bought a laptop with windows 7 on it.

Automatic Cursor Clicking

I've been using windows 7 for the past 2 months. You know how when you leave the cursor sitting on the screen over an item, the window will suddenly change (it's as if you clicked on the item, but you did not - you just left the cursor there). Can someone please tell me if this feature can be turned off? I prefer to click when i click, like the older versions of windows. Does anyone know what this new feature is called? I do not like it. It does not work for me.

Monitor Displays "no Input Detected"

Monitor displays "no input detected" after completing installation is displayed after initial restart. Whenever i try to upgrade/install to windows 7, it will get past the initial installation procedures and after restarting to complete the installation it will proceed to the point where it states "completing installation" and then after 30 seconds my monitor will display "no input detected. "

Specs: amd phenom ii x4 965 processor, dual radeon hd 4850 graphics cards in crossfirex, 4gb of ddr3 1333 ram.

Things i have tried:

-Booting into safe mode: results in message stating installation cannot be completed in safe mode and then proceeds to restart the computer and then the above happens again
-Booting into safe mode and pressing shift + f8 and typing explorer.exe: results in start bar appearing, but none of the functions are usable, and usually it will then restart and above.
-Booting into low graphics mode: no effect
-Removing one of the graphics cards: no effect
-Removing the crossfire bridge: no effect
-Flash drive unattend.xml file graphics card driver update: no effect

Problem Clicking On Desktop And Taskbar

I have a new sony vaio laptop (about 2 weeks old) with windows 7, which has been working fine up to now. Since yesterday, when i start up, i have a cursor which i can move about the screen, but when i click (r or l) on an icon nothing happens. It's the same whether i use the mouse, tap the touchpad or click the touchpad buttons. If i open the start menu using the key, when i click on any item the menu closes down.

I can navigate with the arrows to restart. 1 out of 6 starts this morning has got me working again. I downloaded all the latest window 7 updates this morning but it took a few restarts to be working again after the installation. Have any of you good people got a clue what's going on, or do i need to get out my guarantee?

Mouse Clicking Not Functioning Properly

My right and left mouse click are not working properly. They both bring up the same (i don't know the term, but when you left click it gives you options like copy etc. ) That. Web searches, when you click on a link double click doesn't work you have to select "open window" to get the page to open up. Curser moves but then when you click to put it at a certain spot, the normal "left click options" opens. Then it will not go away? If you use the arrow keys it just scrolls around on the left click options, undo, cut, copy, paste, etc. You have to start typing to get it to go away?

Windows, left clicking in windows does nothing, doesn't bring up the options at all? I do not have my mouse controls swapped i checked under control panel and it says it is set as right dominate. Does anyone know what is causing this? It just started about 5 hours ago and is driving me nuts.
