    Unable to add a web page to favorites

    Hello everyone,

    For a moment I can not add a web page to my bookmarks. I can add the Favorites pane. Is it just because I moved the storage files from C to D?

    If this is the reason, how to enable adding to favorites? Thank you and good day

    Which operating system you are using and getting this problem? It's your PC running Vista?

    Which browser you are using? Are you talking about Internet Explorer?

    You have an error message or information when you are trying to do?

    Well then we'll start from the idea that indeed the removal of your file could raise concern ...

    When you say you move the storage files to D: what are these files?

    Look where is the folder of your favorites, it normally under Vista:
    C:\Users\user_name\Favorite

    if not there, do a search to find this way, and post it here..

    Hello

    The files are moved:

    As for the favorites folder on C:/users/all users/Favorite is a shortcut, by clicking: Error Message: is not accessible - access denied

    Under C:/users/Xyz/ No favorite folders and shortcuts give me the same error message by clicking.

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking, problem of access right after you move your files ...

    Well, already we should find a true record "favorite", that of your session.

    You have launched a search for file / folder with "favorite"? is you've found that under "all users"?

    Now let's see which IE uses:

    Navigate in the registry, does not alter or delete anything!

    Opens the editor registry: In the search bar, type: regedit

    In the new window that opens, find that key
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders

    click it once. In the right pane, you'll have information Find the line called: Favorites, And give me the path that is opposite.

    Open a command prompt in administrator mode:
    Start -> All Programs -> Accessories
    On the line "command prompt" do right click -> run in administrator mode

    In the command window prompt, hit this:

    icacls D:\Files C\Favorites /setintegritylevel (OI)(CI)low
    Valid "entry"

    Here, try it, it should work
