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.

Delete History In Address Bar

I have a sony vaio. It has vista home. I have an item (site)  with accompanying info (images). That seems to be embedded in the history at the address bar. When i try to delete them it is still there. I have tried through control panel, safety and also the tools button. All these methods work to delete all the other history but this one site and its accompanying images. I'm not real knowledgeable with computer but i'm trying. I think i have read in forum of similar (i think?) Problem. Can someone walk me through solving this?

Folder access denied

You'll need to provide administrator permission to delete this folder

Continue skip cancel

- I click continue and i get:

Folder access denied

You require permission from laptop/chris to make changes to this folder

Try again cancel

- I am laptopchris! (My username is chris on the login screen so i presume i am laptop/chris). Do i have to have permission to do something on my own computer? It's my computer! Im a newbie when it comes to windows 7. Windows 95, 98, 98se, me, 2000, xp im more advanced in, with vista im slightly there.

I have tried numerous attempts at the silly take ownership thing but it seems to have failed. The message i get up when applying the new settings is:

Error applying security information to :

C:users.

Access is denied

This is rather frustrating - am i doing something wrong? Would someone please provide simple, easy to follow, accurate steps to take ownership and provide me with a solution or better, a fix, if this doesn't work?

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?

Full File Address In Folder Explorer Bar

How to show full file address in folder explorer bar in windows 7? Is it possible to make the address show similar to xp (c:program filesadobe. )? It's extremely confusing as it is now, especially when in a mapped drive (i would expect the base level to show the mapped drive rather than "computer").

Cannot Delete Folder With Files In It

Every time i try to delete a folder with files in it i get "you need permission to perform this action". I used a fresh install on win7, it's the 64-bit version, professional. This happens anytime i try to delete folders with something in them. I made the folders, so i can't see that it's a permission thing. As well, i can go into the folder and just delete the files, and when that is done, i can delete the folder, which means to me that the files were not in use. Suggestions?

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?

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?

Language Bar Changes Itself

The language bar randomly changes the language from us english to chinese for no particular reason, it also changes the keyboard input from us to multilingual canada, (which isn't that bad, you just lose out on most of your punctuation) has anyone else encountered this problem, i can change it back, it's just annoying when your typing and then you look at the screen and somewhere halfway through it you see that the language changed without any intention.

I can change it back but every couple days on the 3 computers i have purchased win7 for are having this issue, so i know it's not a hardware issue.

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.

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.
