Removing the Links folder from Internet Explorer Favourites

Does it irritate you that Internet Explorer insists on showing you its Links folder in your Favorites (I know, American spelling but that’s just how Microsoft make it)? Sure, you can remove the Links toolbar by simply right-clicking an area of the Internet Explorer toolbar and de-selecting it from the popup menu.

However, the Links folder will still appear in your Favorites menu. You should NOT just delete this folder as it can cause problems. Instead:

  1. Open your Favorites menu and right-click the Links folder
  2. Select Properties from the popup menu
  3. Click the check box to make the folder hidden
  4. Click on OK and close Internet Explorer

Next time you look in your Favorites menu there will be no Links folder!
