Sorry to the typo in the above post. The instructions should be a) Click Start, type shell:favorites and press Enter…
There is no space between shell: and favorites for the search to work correctly. I’ve edited the above post with the corrected step.
In addition to making sure the permissions are correct on the shell:favorites location (the steps provided by Ajay K above) let’s also reset the location to its default:
·In the address bar, paste this location:%userprofile%
·PressEnter on your keyboard
·Make sure you have aFavorites folder listed in the%userprofile% folder
·If there isn’t a Favorites folder listed, create a new folder and name itFavorites
·Click theLocation tab
If that doesn’t help, you can edit the registry to direct the Shell:Favorites location to the location of your Favorites folder. You can do this by:
