Why do my favourites not work?

    Got a new laptop and started adding things into my faves and only one that works when I click on it is Facebook.

    We have tried deleting them and re adding them, with no luck. Never had this problem before.

    Just noticed Facebooks link in Fave is http/www. ...........
    where as all other things saved starts with C:\users\***\favourites....... then the link to site. Anyone know why its saving them like this, as its saying unknown link shortcut.

    Hi, A quick search shows

    1. Are you unable to add websites to favorites?
    2. What happens when you click on the favorites tab?

    Step 1:
    First check if you can access the contents of the favorites folder.

    Navigate to this location:
    c:\Users\User profile\Favorites

    Step 2:
    Optimize the internet Explorer settings by following the steps mentioned in the KB…213

    Note: The Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature might reset security settings or privacy settings that you added to the list of Trusted Sites.
    The Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature might also reset parental control settings. We recommend that you note these sites before you
    use the Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature.

    Hope this works

    You using internet explorer Beth?
