  2. favorite folders there, sites are gone

    Hi,

    To assist you better, I would like to know whether you are referring to the favorites folder created within the Internet Explorer.

    If you lose the favorites saved within the Internet Explorer
    and as an initial troubleshooting step, I suggest you to check if you are able to locate the favorites that has been missing from Internet Explorer.

    • Click This PC.
    • Type %userprofile% into the Address bar
    • Press Enter on your keyboard
    • Click on Favorites and check if the missing favorites are there.
    If you are able to locate the missing favorites, I suggest you to create a backup and try to import the favorites.

    Refer to the section Import Favorites, from the below article.

  3. Edge favorites and favorites bar gone

    Hi Kim,

    Welcome to Microsoft community and thank you for posting your query.

    I would like to know some information about the issue so that we could help you better.


    • Do you have a Favorites folder at [C:\Users\your account name\Favorites] ? Does it contain all of the favorites?

    • Did you import the favorites from any browser other than Internet Explorer?
    In order to view the favorites bar, you must turn it on. Here are the steps to do this:

    1. Within Microsoft Edge, you will see a button with ellipses on it
    (...) in the top right hand corner. Click this.

    2. At the very bottom of the dropdown menu, click "Settings".

    3. Near the top of the next page, you will see a section titled "Show the favorites bar" and a switch beneath it. Simply click this switch into the on positon and your favorites bar should immediately appear underneath the search
    bar at the top of Microsoft Edge

    To restore your favorites I would suggest you to try the steps mentioned below and check if it helps.

    How to restore the favorite’s folder in Internet Explorer.


    • To open the Registry Editor, click Start.

    • Type regedit into the Start Search field.

    • Press Enter.

    • Find Favorites under the following Registry keys:

      HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Explorer\Shell folders
      HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Explorer\User Shell folders

      HKEY_USERS\.default\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Explorer\Shell folders

      HKEY_USERS\.default\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Explorer\User Shell folders

    • Right click it and select Modify. The Edit String dialog will open.

    • Verify that the Value Data field contains the correct location of your Favorites folder. If it does not, enter the right location to restore your missing Favorites folder to Internet Explorer.

      C:\Users\NetID\Favorites

    • Close the registry editor.

    • Open Internet Explorer to confirm that your favorites are there.

      Note: This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that
      you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number
