The OP is using IE9 but is using the Windows Classic theme.
Oh...yeah...Thanks. I forgot that existed.

I'm so glad to hear that, because I prefer the Windows Classic theme and am so relieved that the huge back button (and resulting vertical space at the top of the screen) won't be an issue.

Ahhhh all is clear!!

Now I can see - my desktop is set to "classic" and my laptop set to Windows 7 basic - hence that awful road sign sized back button and that wasted space at the top (will attach a snip).

After I am going back to classic on little lappy to keep me happy lol!!

See the difference!!

Hiyya Brummyfan (expat Sussexfan here lol!!) Here is a couple of snips of the same page only I couldn't get all of it fitted in for you to see.

The little green arrow is as you can se on the left of my screen and just plonks the Favourites on the bar - the main Favourites listings are on the right side of the screen in that white star - thats the one I'd like on the left with the green arrow.

The large wide bar and huge Back button I mentioned in my other post is on the laptop which is playing up at the moment and this desktop screen view snip/s are just fine by me except for the favourites position.
Hi ICit2lol, If you are thinking of moving the white star to the left,I don't think it can be done. If you click the green arrow in my pic the Fav listing will appear on the left side of the screen.
Yes mate unfortunately I've tried all sorts of things but in classic, and the 7 basic views it is on the right. Why they need to keep changing the damn thing is beyond me - it's like going into those supermarkets that keep altering the isles doesn't that drive you stark raving (oh that awful wailing woman musiclol!!)

Hmm, here's a snip of my IE9 RC - looks kind of different from you guys. I suppose it's up to you to customize its appearance.
