In IE, the favourites timeout and get hidden in the favourites menu.

If you click the arrow at the bottom, the favourites menu expands and you can see them.

I want to turn this off so that they're all displayed all the time.

It says that you can turn this off in the inet options, but I can't find where.

Can anyone help me out with this?

It already is.

As far as I know that's just so that different users on the same PC can have seperate favourites.

Not on an ME machine at the moment, but I believe that option is in the Start button/bar.
Right click on the bar/properties and you should find the option.may need to go to Advanced.
That will work for the whole system.
For Office, you may need to change it in Office.

As centerv said

Start > Settings > Taskbar Bar and Start menu
On the General tab
Deselect "Use Personalized Menu"

>>>As far as I know that's just so that different users on the same PC can have seperate favourites.

Not in the way you may have in mind. This setting isn't what it appears to be. It acually affects the meny in the manner you describe.
