Removing "Links" from Favorites

By gambat13 ·
I'm **** about organizing my Favorites in IE; however, every time I delete the "Links" Favorites directory that MS puts there, it comes back. How do I delete it permanently? I'm sure there's a line in the Registry that keeps creating it again and again. Thank you.

Im not sure if it is in the registry or in the actual coding but why do you have todelete it ?

IE is just trying to repair itself as it should .

The best way is not to put anything in Favourites and you would not have to delete it .

Run regedit and navigate to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar

Find the key named LinksFolderName and set the value to a blank string, i.e. "".
