    Favorite Links are empty in Windows Explorer



    After a few hours of having Vista RTM installed, I noticed that the Favorite
    Links area that is shown on the top of the navigation pane in Windows
    Explorer just says (empty) now. If I click the folder location the
    shortcuts are still there, but they are missing from the pane itself. I
    just moved the folder bar all the way to the top now, but I'm curious if
    anyone else has had the same problem. I've attached a screenshot.

    Hi Jesse,
    Try to re-add the links. While you are the Windows Explorer, drag something
    from "Folders" to "Favorite Links" e.g. Documents. Drag another item and
    then re-launch Windows Explorer. See if that will display properly.
    The default links I got here are:
    Documents
    Music
    Pictures
    Public
    Recent Changes
    Searches

    Regards,
