Solved Lost Favorites during Windows 10 upgrade

August 20, 2015 at 13:33:35
Specs: Windows 7
After windows 10 upgrade I lost my Favorites. I can't even find the bar it was on. I've tried going back to c:\drive, open users, chose my user acct, right clicked on icon text Favorites, then clicked on restore previous version. I still couldn't find any favorites. No Favorites Bar, nothing. This is very frustrating. Any and all help will be GREATLY appreciated.

The menu bar is hidden by default. To get it back on IE11, follow THIS to see the menu bar, and hopefully your Favorites.

I feel stupid! Where is the START button?

With luck you won't have to do the "import" bit - just the first part that brings up the menu. Note - I'm assuming you mean the new Edge browser.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Forget about the START button - The link I gave you was for Windows 7. Ignore it. The link below is for Windows 10.

How to open Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) in Windows 10

Derek -

Internet Explorer 11 is very much alive in Windows 10. Microsoft didn't kill it; they just made it harder to find it. On my end I have no problem importing cookie and favorites into IE11 from my Windows 7 machine. As for Microsoft Edge I have not yet played with it.

I imagine IE is still iexplore.exe - not so sure about Edge either.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
