    Missing Favorites (WXpHe IE6)

    I've lost the plot :-)
    We have 2 pc's named, originally PCONE and PCTWO. We have been sharing the same set of Favouties between the machines - the Favorites are located at pctwoDDocuments and SettingsFavorites. Recently we re-mapped some of our network drives and consequently the location change whilst we re-orded and now don't show up in IE6 on PCONE. I thought that in TweakUI you couls adjust the settings for Favorites - but I'm probably looking too hard! Where in Tweak, or in deed in the Registry is the Favorites location setting please?

    In TweakUI XP, expand My Computer and click on Special Folders in the left hand panel. Select Favorites from the dropdown in the right hand panel, then click Change Location.

    The registry entry, as far as I can tell, is the Favorites value in HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVe rsionExplorerShell Folders.

    Re: Missing Favorites (WXpHe IE6)

    While we are on the subject of Favorites.....

    I have a LOT of favorites shortcuts. It seems to me that there was once a way to have them display in two or more columns, rather than one column with the scroll arrow at the bottom to see additional favorites.

    For the life of me, I can't remember how to do this, or if it's even available now in XP.
    Any help here?

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    There is an option to display Start | (All) Programs scrolling or in multiple columns, but there is no built-in equivalent for Favorites. There may be third-party utilities that offer this capability, but I don't know of any.
