So this is for William who emailed me with this question. He had made an IE Favorite folder hidden and couldn’t find a way to get it back.
As this folder is just like any other folder it is quite simple to fix, but the key is to know where your favorites are stored.
Thanks to Ian who supplied me the answer
Read more on hidden files
And while he's there right-click the folder and choose Properties. Untick Hidden (on the General tab) and when prompted choose "Apply changes to this folder, subfolders and files" and click OK to stop it being hidden.
Then re-turn off "Show Hidden Files".
Thank you Rob, Ian. Thought I lost my Favorites forever! YOU MADE MY DAY!!!
Patty - always great to hear when something you post is useful :)
Thanks so much! It was driving me crazy and I didn't know the folder properties had changed. Thank you!
Devastated! It didn't work. Internet favorites just keeps telling me there is already a folder of that name when I try to create a new one!! Any other suggestions?
Thank U Much
I need the icon to make the wording larger
Hi ada - sorry what do you mean
Thanks Rob, Lan and Stu. Without Stu's final step this process was incomplete.
