    Last month (or longer) I switched from IE to Chrome. Today I went back to IE just to get a name of a site I bookmarked and nothing was there(?) Everything was gone. What happened to all my old bookmarks and is there a way to find them?

    Bookmarks are called Favorites in IE. I assume you looked under Favorites in the IE Menu bar? I also assume we're talking about IE11?

    If so and they aren't there are you sure you're logged in as the correct user who added those sites to your favorites?

    Lastly, look in this location:

    C:\Users\(your usename)\Favorites folder to see if they are listed there.
