The favorites are the same as the ones in Internet Explorer, so deleting favorites from one will automtaically delete them from the other. In fact, Windows Explorer and Internet Explorer are tried into one another (should I go so far as to say one-in-the-same?)...a sitaution (integration of IE into Windows) that has creaded a pretty good debate concerning both security and legality. For instance, open Windows Explorer and type in http://www.cnet.com ...it will instantly ''turn into'' Internet Explorer. Thus it is impossible to delete a favorite from one and not the other.
If you are referring to the category ''favorites,'' you're out of luck again. It is impossible to remove a single menu (in this case, favorites), or the entire menu bar (''file'' through ''help''), using ''normal means'' (although there may be a third-party program that can do this). The only thing you can do is remove the ''favorites'' button from the toolbar by right-clicking the toolbar, and selecting ''customize.'' Then scrool down through the list and ''remove'' ''favorites.''
Hope this helps,
it drives me crazy .... how do you remove *favorites* from the menu bar of explorer ... NOT internet explorer!
