    MOST Favorite Icons are gone


    Since the Creators update it seems about 90% of my favorite icons are gone and have reverted to the IE browser Icon. Not the little blue round one the one that looks like a paper with the IE logo on it.

    I tried resetting IE
    I tried deleting ALL the icons and making new ones, didn't work
    I notice some web pages never show one on the tab in IE but do in stupid Edge like kodi forums
    I deleted the IconCache.db in C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local - Worked but only for the current session
    I tried copying the favorites from another PC - No joy

    So...what next, oh Great Ones *Smile ?

    EDIT

    I got it fixed. Deleted all the files in browsing history, deleted the same IconCache.db file and THEN restarted Windows. Problem solved! Damn I'm good once in a while. *Smile

    :)

  3. 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.

    Hope the information provided was helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist you.

    Thank you.
