ON windows 7 normally under file edit view tools help there is a place there with options but now that is missing somehow I used to be able to click view options there and such but now its missing. I do not see settings for this anywhere. Thanks

maybe in the registry there are setting for favorites where I can tell it to how to behave. Obviously Samsung knows how to tamper with it.

Favorites are closed by default and part of explorer menu at top missi-ffff.jpg I want this to be open by default not closed.

We should have complete control over favorites. in 7 and 10 both
I go to users\favorites and that is not my favorites its something else.
I do not know where this favorites folder is actually located on my computer.
Maybe the settings for favorites is in my registry.
takes when it could all be avoided if we just had a little more control over how things worked.

Display Favorites as a link not a menu in Start Menu
I think the only thing that will work here is a registry hack. By default if you set the start menu properties to display "favorites" it does so by a menu. It does not give you a choice to display this as a link or a menu like it does for other folders. Is there a way to fix this?

Internet Explorer - favorites menu
I find with the upgrade from 7068 to 7077, my favorites bar often will have the icons for the different web pages to be an globe symbol for a second before it shows the website logos. Is anyone else having this issue? it is more of a bother than a show stopper, but one i want to go away FAST! :D
