Windows 7: favorites

15 Nov 2009   #1

Windows 7

Since upgrading from Vista to 7 Home Premium I can't access my favorites from the Start Menu. When I click the "Favorites" tab, the list shows up, but when I click on a site, the list goes away and nothing happens. Also the ones that have sub menus, the sub menus don't show up. If I open them from inside IE everything is normal. Any ideas as how to fix this?

I haven't seen this problem, but:

Try turning the Favorites feature off, then back on.

Right click on desktop, select "personalize". Click on "taskbar and start menu" (lower left of the windows that opened). Click the Start Menu tab. Click the Customize button on that tab. Scroll down and uncheck the Favorites menu. OK or apply.

Repeat and recheck to turn Favorites back on.

Hope it works.

If you did an upgrade-in-place form Vista to Win7, and that's the worst problem that resulted, you're luckier than some. (I'm a fan of clean installs.)
