Internet Explorer is the default web browser on the Windows 7 operating system. It allows you to store favorite websites (bookmarks) on your computer so that you can access the same websites quickly whenever you want to. Internet Explorer stores the favorite’s folder on your computer system where you can access it and make changes using Windows Explorer. It's easy to delete the bookmarks you no longer need.

Step 1

Click the Windows "Start" button and click "Computer" to launch Windows Explorer.

Step 2

Double-click the "C:" drive and double-click the "Users" folder.

Double-click your username folder and double-click the "Favorites" folder. You should see a list of the bookmarked websites. If you want to delete a bookmark, right-click it and click "Delete." To delete multiple files, press the left mouse button and drag the mouse across the folder to select the bookmarks you want to remove. Right-click the highlighted files, and click "Delete."


  • The location of the Favorites folder is the same for both Windows Vista and 7 operating systems.
