Windows 7: Favourites Bar

Favourites Bar

This is a snip of my Favourites bar

You will see that some of the icons have pics on them while others do not, can anyone tell me how I can get it so they all have pics ?

Thanks

Some sites do not set favicons, but I'd try deleteing browser history

Internet Explorer 9 - Delete Browsing History

Then revisit those sites and see if it sets a favicon. If not, suggest removing the favorite, and bookmarking and saving it again. A Guy

Thanks very much

It has not brought all of them back, but most have been restored to as I had them before

Nice. Some favicons always seem to disappear as they are stored in temp files, but the major sites always want their logo in your face, so make sure to code their sites correctly. You can probably set the others by saving the favicons from your cache and saving them to a folder and changing them manually. Unsure if the bookmarks bar lets you right click a icon and see properties? And if so, if there is a shortcut tab, with the change icon choice? Let me know if you want to go there

Right click one and click on Properties as A Guy suggests,
General section check the Hidden box and Apply,
Uncheck the Hidden box and Apply and Okay.

Just like to add,
leave the top box in Delete browser history Unchecked when you delete,
This seems to be a problematic section.
Cheers.
