    There is a a folder under my favorites called Links that always reappears no matter how many times I delete it. Anyone know where in the registry I can edit this?

    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.

    you can do two things. either delete the folder and stop it from reapperaing or you can simply hide it.

    for the former
    Open your registry and find the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar.
    Set the value of "LinksFolderName" to equal a blank string. Open IE and delete the Links folder from the Favorites menu.
    The next time you start Internet Explorer the Links folder will not be recreated.


    for the latter
    simply set the attribute of links folder to "hidden" from explorer!
    it is usually located in "C:\Documents and Settings\User\Favorites"
    as soon as u set it to hidden, it will not be shown in the list

    A nice alternative method you have though, I never thought of that:?

    I've been hiding mine for some time now. Works for me anyway. :)

    Well no point in opening another thread I've got another question. I cannot remember where to go to change my Recycle Bin icon. Also how do I rename it? This clean install totally changed everything back from how I had it and I dont remember anything.
