Now I have to got to "My Network Places" to access the things that I have saved. I'll bet it has to do with Internet Explorer, but I can't be certain. Anyone have any ideas as to what happened?

@Letty,
Did you accidentally hit something? If there's a little X in a box up on your menu bar, hit it and see what happens. Or type "Favourites" in the Help box if you have one. I use Yahoo and don't have a Favourites area at all. Are you talking about your browser instead?

@Letty,
Letty-

If you are on any webpage, even A2K, look at the top, under the webpage address. Do you see "favorites" there? If so, click it, and see what happens. I can get to my favorites from ANY webpage.

@Phoenix32890,
I'm on a Mac, so my favourites are laid out a little differently, but that's what I was thinking Phoenix. I just can't remember the layout she's talking about. I remember, though, on the left (top) there'd be the word Favourites and then a box immediately to the right and if you clicked on it, your favourites disappeared. There's some keystroke combo that gets them to open up again, though. Also, isn't there a box with an X in it that she would click?

Thanks, Mame and Phoenix. Nope, don't see favorites anywhere here on A2K. I'm a litttle timid about clicking on X's when I don't know what will happen. It may have been something stupid that I did. Lately, I have seen in my systems trey, a printing notice that reads: One document for owner waiting to be printed. Usually, it's something on Yahoo, or a post on A2K. What a waste of paper.

I'll keep trying to fix things. Maybe I'll get it right, eventually.

@Letty,
Letty- Right under the webpage address on top of the page, right click. A menu will drop down. Left click, "Menu bar".

@Phoenix32890,
Will do, Phoenix. I need to remedy some other things first, however, then I'll do the test run.

@Letty,
Found this by looking for answers on the web:

Hello, Letty
If you're talking about Favorites on Internet Explorer 7, click the gold star on the left of the toolbar, or press Alt + c on your keyboard to get your Favorites, click the gold star with the green plus sign to add to favorites, and if you want the Menu Bar with File, Edit, View, Favorites, Tools, and Help to show, right click a gray blank space on the toolbar, and on the popup menu click Menu Bar.

If you only need the Menu Bar with File, Edit, View, Favorites, Tools, and Help to appear temporarily just press the Alt key on your keyboard. This way your toolbar doesn't take up as much of your screen. If you want it to stay permanently, right click on a gray blank space on the toolbar and click Menu Bar.

I clicked on the gold star and there were my favorites. Don't understand the rest of it, and I don't know about Internet Explorer 7. I figured that it had something to do with Internet Explorer, however.

Again, Thanks to Mame and Phoenix.
