how to stop 'status bar' & 'favorites' folder

How can I stop the 'status bar' from showing every time I open IE5 up, I've unchecked it in view.

I also get an empty folder (links) in 'favorites', every time I open IE5. I've deleted the 'links' folder in the C:/windows/favorites which didn't help.

Thanks for any help that you can give me, Mike

It does not help removing the Links folder from Favorites using "Organise" then delete. I've also tried holding down the 'control' button when closing the IE5 window after removing the links folder.

I have notice that I only get the 'status bar' problem when I open a 'new' window from an existing window so this is no longer a problem with me.

Thanks, Mike

Have also deleted the links folder, used the control button when closing that window, then reboot with the links folder there again in favorites.

hi,
 u r correct.  IE5 may requires that Link folder that's why when u open IE5, u will get Link folder . deleting the Link folder is not possible.

RESOLUTION
Although the Links folder cannot be deleted, the properties of the Links folder can be set to Hidden so that the folder is no longer displayed when you open the Favorites.

To set the properties of the Links folder to Hidden:


Click Favorites on the toolbar.
Right-click the Links folder, and then click Properties.
Click to select the Hidden check box.
Click OK.

You can press F5 to refresh the file listing and the Links folder will no longer be displayed, although it will still be in the system and function normally.

Thank you for your time, please post your answer for the points, Mike
