When I open I.Explorer 8, the favorites bar (with the links & favorites) isn't visible--infact I can see my desktop thru where it should be. I've installed version 8 twice and both times this has occured. Sometimes I have to reopen Internet Explorer several times before it loads correctly. How do I fix this?

Favorite. Sometimes abbreviated as fav, a favorite is a feature found in Microsoft Internet Explorer that allows a user to save the locations to their favorite Internet locations. Similar to Netscape's and Firefox bookmarks.

Just click on favorites on the top of the page of internet explorer(located alongside the section where you could see files, view, etc..) then click Add to Favorites. Then just click Add. You could also create folders for your favorites if you'd like and you could see on the favorites tab as well.
Hope this helps! Thank you for using FixYa!
Had the same problem. Went to the IE8 home page (Microsoft). They are supporting IE8 at no cost until Dec 31. Wait time was minimal, tech took control of my computer and fixed the problem you described in a few seconds. Sorry, I do not remember the exact steps.
Are you using internet explorer (IE 7)? or you are using the internet explorer with an old version. If your internet is unable to load some website you may need to restore its settings. but before doing it, you need to export your favorites first.
1. Open internet explorer then go to file then export your favorites.
2. Click on Tools then internet option, the go to Advance tab
3. for Internet explorer 7(newer version) click on reset. Restore for old internet explorer version.
