What browser are you using, Internet Explorer? I'll assume that for now.

Do you mean you open Favorites and they are not there or that you do not have the word Favorites in the top bar? If it is the latter then right click around the top bar and see if "Menu bar" and "Favorites bar" are both checked.

If the word Favorites is there but empty then look to see if they are here:
"System drive (usually C) > Users <user name> Favorites". If they are there then IE is not displaying them, in which case you could try this:
IE >Internet Options > Advanced tab > Reset button. You will lose your addons but they soon come back with usage.

Depending on your situation go through the suggestions in the order given.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Another possible... Depends on why or how your favourites came to be missing... If you made a change to your installation, then perhaps use the System Restore points routine; and go bak to an earlier date? Might be one solution...?
