How Does It Work

There are two main reasons why your Favorites bar went missing:

  • The Favorites bar is hidden due to mis-configuring or updating Internet Explorer.
  • TheĀ  Favorites folder is customized and is no longer located at its default location.

If any of these problems exists, the Favorites bar disappears, the Favorites center becomes hidden, and/or your favorites appear to be gone.
