Favourites folder not appearing on home page

Hi, Help would be appreciated.
My favourites folder will not appear on my homepage. I can see the folder in 'C:\Users\Users\Favourites' and it does indeed contain all my favourites.
I have windows 7 home premium with Internet explorer.

Forgive my ignorance but please reply in simple terms.

In addition to above maybe this screen capture will help. It confuses my because there are 3 'User' folders showing

Hello Pops, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Please give more details. Your favorites is not an available option for a homepage in Internet Explorer.

Do you mean Favorites on the menu bar (Alt) instead?

Menu Bar - Turn On or Off
