That allows you to create a new sub folder under Favorites in your user account. You can then move certain links into the new sub while browsing the account folders. Want a new "Preferred" folder?

Hello Jim,

Jim,

You might see if completely resetting IE9 may help afterwards. If not, then you might see if uninstalling and reinstalling IE9 may.

Tried reset and no joy. I guess I will have to Bing it tomorrow and see what I can find. Reinstall will be my last choice.

I think you were correct with the first reply on the need to redownload a fresh copy of IE 9. It sounds like he saw a bad install for some reason. With one click here all favorites were visible in the organizer suggesting an incomplete install.

I uninstalled IE9 and IE8 has the same problem. I reinstalled IE9 and still no joy. I will let it go for now as I am planning a clean install next month. Thanks for all the help.
