Creating a Desktop Shortcut to Your IE Favorites

There are times when, for some strange and as yet undetermined reason, you can’t access your IE Favorites through that program. You launch IE, click on "Favorites", and get a very short "generic" listing. Your Favorites file is probably still safely out on Thurber; for some reason IE isn’t "tracking" back to Thurber to retrieve it.

Should this happen to you:

When you need to access your Favorites, double click on this icon, you’ll get a window listing your Favorites (it’ll look similar to what you’d normally see), locate the Favorite you want to access, double click on it, and you’re off and running.
