It also is found in Explore / Desktop /PeterP / favs ( between documents and links) and again only the folders show and there is an additional favs folder.
In that other favs folder is a bookmark (HTML) that has all the folders plus the individual bookmarks in it again .
In start / documents is a favorites folder that I have recreated . When I click on start/documents in the address bar it says documents/ PeterP / favorites then displays the file folder I recreated . This folder opens to a file labeled bookmarks and opens to the same bookmarks I have in the favs subfolders mentioned above
You can understand my confusion. Is this what is called file sharing ?
In any event I remember distinctly that there was a favs folder in start/ documents/. Thatís why I recreated it . Are you saying that there should not be any such folder. When I deleted it I lost all my favorites in IE favorites
Here is the microsft info on importing IE 7 favorites where the reference to Documents folder Bookmark.html was found.
#5 By default Internet Explorer imports from a fole called Bookmark.html in you Documents folder Import or export favorites in Internet Explorer - Windows Vista Help
Do you think I should do the procedure you mentioned , or leave well enough alone ?
