    Favorites Toolbar on IE11


    I have about 25 sites which I have shortened the name on the toolbar. In addition, I have the toolbar lock checked but for some reason the toolbar will remain as I made it but I variably lose 3-5 icons.


    My system is a Lenovo 23" All In One

    Thanks

    If you can identify each bookmark by it's favicon, try without names.

    You could set them to show icons only to save space, or group them into folders by type; for example forums. news, download. and thenuse the drop down menus.
