Go into control panel and open "folder options", check off show hidden files, and system files. Then do a search for "all files or folders" and type in search word "Favorites" without the quotes. Internet explorer favorites are stored in this folder and can be deleted as if they were a file. locate it icon in the favorites folder, right click and delete. Hope this helps. if your using something other than IE you will need to make another comment here

Get Bookmarks Bar to show up!


which browser are you using? I am not aware that Microsoft has a "bar" but if you are using Internet explorer then this "bar" is called "favorites". Firefox will call them "bookmarks".
Reset Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome or any other browser you are using e./g. OPERA.

Remove bookmarks


The bookmarks bar contains all your bookmarks and bookmark folders created in Google Chrome. You can dock the bar directly underneath the address bar at the top of the browser window for easy access to your favorite sites.

Dock the bookmarks bar

  1. Click the Chrome menu snp_9721c573e41777fba43e1498ad084e3b160c_2696434_en_v2 on the browser toolbar.
  2. Select Bookmarks.
  3. Select Always show bookmarks bar.
You can also use the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+Shift+B (Windows and Chrome OS) and Command-Shift-B (Mac) to toggle the bar on and off.

Hide or undock the bookmarks bar

Right-click (or control-click on a Mac) the bookmarks bar and deselect Always show bookmarks bar. When the bookmarks bar is undocked, you can always find it at the top of the New Tab page.

Click on favorite, how do you edit or delete


It depends on the browser and device. For instance on ipad in chrome you would go to the 3lines on the right of your address bar tap on it tap on bookmarks then tap edit .if you tap on the "x" you delete, if you tap on the icon you can rename your bookmark. Then save and you're done.
on a pc you click on bookmarks/favorites choose the one you edit , right click on the bookmark and either rename or delete.

Hope this helps

Kindly let me know how to bring the favourite butten in "command


Hi Kalyanasunda,

I am not sure if you are referring to Bookmarks when you say your "favorite button". But I suggest you do a right lick any where above the address bar and you will have options like Navigation Toolbar, Bookmarks tool bar, and Customize. You can click on any of these options and see if they might help or give you a hint and get where you want to go to.
