Favorite Links not showing

By davidjones2649 ·
My Favorite Links pane in Windows Explorer shows Empty. When I open the Links folder all the default links are present but will not display. Clicking on Restore Default Links doesn't make them appear either.
Am I missing something simple because I'm sure they used to be there.

Favorite Links sorted

by davidjones2649 In reply to Favorite Links not showin ...

I managed to sort out my problem. It appears that there are many ways of removing the shortcut arrow from shortcut and some programme had used a wrong one. This stops teh shortcuts from showing at all in the Navigation pane of Explorer. Seems crazy but repairing the registry put it right.

The cause:- a missing "IsShortcut"="" in [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\lnkfile]
