A dumb , but simple question. Does Windows 7 have a favorite selection or is it now a bookmark ?? If there is a favorite where do you find it ? THANKS

A bookmark is a function of the browser that you use, not the operating system.

I understand that. I just wanted to know if there is a favorite like on my old system. With vista there was a star to click on to get your favorites

Try right clicking in IE's toolbar area and make sure that you have a check next to Favorites Bar.

I hate to ask but where or what is the IE's area ?

RE: Windows 7 ???

IE = Internet Explorer. Are you using that as your browser, or Firefox, or Chrome, or ???

Firefox..

As Sushipup stated above, the Favourites (now called Bookmarks, but same thing), has nothing to do with Windows 7, but is a function of Firefox.

When you open a Firefox page, look up in the top left corner of the screen. Do you see File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks etc? That Bookmarks is your old Favourites.


When you find a page you want to save, right click on that page and click Bookmark This Page.

Then go up on screen and click Bookmarks, and your saved link will be there in the drop-down box.

Firefox has bookmarks, IE (Internet Explorer) calls them favorites. I'm sure that you can understand the confusion.
