"Favorites" heading vanished

Monroe, WI(Zone 4b)

Can anyone give me a hint as to what I might have inadvertently done to make my "Favorites" heading vanish? It was here till just a week or so ago (I don't use it, it's the Spousal Unit's "go to" heading for his sites). The only thing I did about that time was get a "thing" asking if I wanted to upgrade to I.E. 9...........and I did. Could that have made it disappear??? Grrrr.............

Look at the upper right corner of your browser screen to see if there is a house (home), a star (favorites) and a cog wheel (tools).

Hi Anna,

I am not sure but upgrading to IE 9 probably reset your settings when using IE. Open IE and then click on Tools on the top menu - should be on the right. Then click on "Menu Bar" or "Favorites Bar". The menu bar should bring back the Favorites as a menu selection. The Favorites bar should give you an entire bar at the top that allows you to click on your favorite sites.

Hope that helps,

Yup, I found the star. Muchas gracias............:>) The Spousal Unit will be very happy he has his "favorites" tab back again.

Upgrading your IE should not change your favorites. I think you, as did I, lose your Google task bar which you can reinstall. You can also backup your favorites into a separate folder if you have any type of backup software. I use the Norton backup.

I upgraded to IE9 and didn't like how it changed my toolbars and other things, so uninstalled it-

I left it, as long as I now know where SU can find his favorites.
