    Have you tried clicking on the Orange Star on the left end of the "Tab" bar?

    Have you tried the next icon, a Orange Star with the green +?
    Then open Favorites again.
    I keep my favorites "Pinned" so they are down the left side of the screen.

    Hi I am back again after some more delving. It would seem my problem was that I moved my favourites folder to my d drive. How I move it back again I do not know. My solution has been :-1. use another browser- I used Mozilla, or 2. set up a new user account, which works fine.It seems crazy that you cant move the favourites folder without this problem but there you are!

    Just drag them from the D drive to the C drive.
    Is the full folder moved to the D drive or just the contents of the Favorites folder?

    Drag the folder to the User name that you are logged in as.
