    I cant stand the way Microsoft tries to help you.
    Favorites and the Start menu show my most viewed folders and the rest are hidden -- with down arrow if I want to see them.
    How do I get rid of this.

    Thanks

    try this... right click on the start button & go to explore... then on the left side click favorites... you can then go to the toolbar & click view & change the look to icons etc... if you wish

    I dont want to change the icons I want all folders and files to be expanded at all times, I dont want to have to click on the down arrow to view them.

    Thanks for the input

    actually you can right click on Favorites in the start menu... instead of right clicking on start.... then click explore

    ok I just added a new folder to my desktop... Then I opened Favorites the way I said before , I went to edit & selected all... then I clicked Edit again & clicked copy ... I went to the folder I made on the desktop & pasted copies to it..


    Now they are at my fingertips....so to speak

    I can name the folder Favorites2 & drag it to my start menu if I want to or leave it where it is.

    I wasn't talking about on the toolbar



    ok... you click on favorites and it pops open... or you may see add to favorites & organize favorites ... under that is what you have bookmarked... (if it doesn't open look for a tiny arrow right in the middle of the bar that drops down just under organize favorites}

    oh wait a minute... you mean you don't see any of the icons on the toolbar??? if thats what you mean you right click on an empty place on the toolbar & select customize... from the left side select what you want to see on the toolbar & move it to the right & place in the order you want.

    If that one is not what you're looking for or likes go to their home page and type in "favorite folders" in the search field.........there is 5 or 6 more there to pick from.

    If you're running Windows ME, right-click the taskbar and choose Properties. Then uncheck the option called "Use Personalized Menus."

    Good luck,
