    What is the Favorites folder for in File explorer. The one with a star


    build: 19042.867

    What is the Favorites folder for in File explorer? Is it that easy? It has a big yellow star on the folder icon, so it must be something special. Do you keep your favorite files, apps or links or anything in it? I have searched for an answer but there is nothing specific as to what its for!

    That would be the Internet Favorites folder.

    Larry,

    It's the default folder for Internet Explorer Favorites.

    No other browser uses it.

    Welcome to TenForums.
    It's really worth making time to browse through the
    Tutorial index - there's a shortcut to it at the top of every page.
    - At the foot of the Tutorial index is a shortcut to download it as a spreadsheet.
    - I download a new copy each month so I can benefit from Excel's filtering capabilities when I search for topics of interest.
    - Tutorials are also listed by category at www.tenforums.com/tutorials
