    Question IE9 Favorites Bar- Fixing Hidden Attributes? Tabs Missing! Help

    IE9 Favorites Bar- Fixing Hidden/un-archived tabs that are missing in Windows7?


    HI there, Thank you in advance if anyone has any ideas on how to solve this problem that's been driving me "crazy" for 2 days now!

    Windows 7, 32 Bit OS Dell Mini-HP 210-2145DX Laptop

    I was custominzing my Favorites Bar Specifically in Internet Explorer 9 and changed the attributes to hidden/read-only and un-archived, withoutknowing what kind of impact these would have like a "fool"! Anyhow, now there are some tabs missing all together and some are still titled but when I go to open them they say "empty". Is there ANYTHING I can do to get them back to how they were?

    I ran a system restore and that did not work even though I restored it to before I changed the files! It just kept them
    the same! I did not have them backed up anywhere either...

    I read that I could changed the properties back to their original state but this didnt work either! Now I have just tried replacing the missing or hidden tabs and the new files are showing up like this for example... How to Geek (2)
    as if it's a duplicate!

    If anyone could help, I would be sooooo grateful! I have tried as many suggestions as I could google with NO
    LUCK! Thank YOu!!!

    Type Favorites into Start/search and hit Enter. Are your Favorites Bar entries there ??

    Open Folder Options > View > Check Show hidden files, folders or drives.

    Next open your Favorites folder situated at C:\Users\username\Favorites. You will be able to see the bookmarks here. Change back the Properties.

    Hope it helps!
