hello all,

I run windows XP pro and IE 6.0, with all the updates, when I acess my favorites list it opens it up only 1/2 as much, I have to scroll down to the arrow to open the favorite list open all the way to about 4" wide and lets me see all of my folders, where the more narrow list doesnt show all the folders unless you open it all the way up.

my question is, is there a setting where I can set this so that the favorites list opens all the way the first time you open it. Is there a registry change, or a simple box to check or uncheck in the tools, views, or folder options that I am missing?

appriciate your help and this is the best site hands down.

take care all

If I am not mistaken, you have personalized menus turned on.

In win2000 you goto, start-settings-tasbar and start menu and uncheck "use personalized menus"

you should be able to find it in xp no problem.

thanks The_Egg, it's actually in the same place on the win2k version of ie6 (since it's the same version as winXP)


I knew the setting was somewhere:cool:
