Re: Favorite Links problem
Thanks for that. The Links folder was missing im my userprofile. I created a
new Links folder, I still cannot drag and drop to the favorites area but if
I drag a shortcut to the Links folder it creates a shorcut in the Favorites
? Still not working exactly as it did before

Re: Favorite Links problem
Bob,

Check the post from djh which seems good. It suggests that you delete the Links folder, and then type "shell:Links" in the Start, Search box to re-create the shell folder.
