    I am sure that the najority of the folks will agree with me when it comes to
    their Favorites, We all hate changes, some are good and some bad. With the
    changes that you made with the favorites, why couldnt you have just left them
    alone. I mean WHO needs two favorites. One is enough. So much for
    streamlining IE7.

    When I go to change the icon on them, It takes and puts the properties box
    behind IE, instead of keeping it on top like it did in IE6. I thought that
    something was wrong ith my pc, I kept opening one up and try to change the
    icon and it disappeared, then when I went to close the IE7, there they ALL
    were. Behind IE. So I am having to minimize IE in order to make the
    changes. Why is it doing this? Is there a tab that needs checked/unchecked
    to change this. Is this something that WE ALL will have to live with from
    now on???

    Also when I delete a favorite, it brings up the small box and it seems to
    take forever in deleting it. It NEVER did do this before on IE6!!!

    Also under the attributes does it matter if neither are checked read only
    or hidden. Well I just answered my own question on this, If it is marked
    read-only you CANNOT change the Icon on it. It will not allow you do this.

    You know its a damn shame that one has to go to a different web site to get
    answers to your all's problems.

    First, if you right click a Favorite via the traditional menu bar (not the
    Favorites Centre) and select properties, the properties window will appear
    behind IE7. To avoid the problem, right click a Favorite in the Favorites
    Centre and select properties.

    Second, if you cannot see your Favorites in the Organise Favorites window in
    IE7, it may be that the folders have lost their system attribute. This can
    be fixed by opening a CMD window and running the following command (edited to
    suit your installation environment):

    ATTRIB -S C:\Documents and Settings\username\Favorites /S /D

    Some have gone the whole hog and run this command - it does not seem to do
    any harm, apart from throwing an error about not being able to set the
    attribute on a file or two:

    ATTRIB -S C:\Documents and Settings\username\Favorites\*.* /S /D

    "First" works correctly for me. It is not behind the IE7 screen.

    Actually it's a shame you didn't search before posting this.
    You're telling me this wasn't on ANY microsoft website, where did you find
    your answer.

    No it doesn't. It counts as a site by a MS wannabe that gets perks from
    MS for hyping their products.

    What kind of 'perks' are we talking about here?
