    Deleting unwanted items

    When I open up I have a lot of unwanted items along the top. Dragging to the recycling bin does not work. These are not APPS they are topics I looked at some years ago.

  2. Recovering a deleted email from the deleted items folder or Recycle Bin

    Thank you for the suggestion. The only message I find at the bottom of the message list in the deleted items folder is "To find older messages, use Search". My search did not work.

    As you are facing issues with deleting the items from Favorites on Internet Explorer, we will help you with this issue.

    I suggest you to try the below steps to delete the favorites items if not yet tried and check if it helps.

    • Open Internet Explorer, click on Favorites
      in the Menu bar.
    • Click on the drop down arrow beside Add to favorites.
    • Click on Organize favorites..., click on the option
      Delete. (This will delete all the favorites items in the Favorites bar)

    If you don't want to delete all the items from the Favorites bar, I suggest you to refer to the below Microsoft help article to delete the browsing history and check if it helps.

    View and delete your browsing history
