What is the operating system of the computer? (Windows 98, Windows XP, something else?)

Assuming that you're trying to click on "Favorites" in Internet Explorer, while you're on the internet, there are a couple of things you might have done. (Remember though, there are two different places for "Favorites" One is in the upper left of the screen next to "File", "Edit", "View" and should still be there. The other is in the middle of one of the toolbars immediately below that.) First, RIGHT click on a blank area in the toolbar area at the top of the screen, then place a CHECK mark next to "Standard Buttons" by clicking on it. That should place the line with Favorites" back where it's supposed to be.

If it doesn't, then you may have reduced the size of that toolbar. Hover your mouse over the up and down separater and "drag" it to one side so the "Favorites" link is displayed.

Hope this helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
