I recnetly installed Vista (Home Basic). I did an upgrade from Windows XP (Home) SP2. Though it's working well, there are a couple of minor annoyances I'd like to straighten out. Here are two that relate to Internet Explorer: 1. History is missing. Whne I press Ctrl+Shift+H or click on the History button, it's completely empty. The few pages that show up when I click on the arrow next to the back/forward buttons are the only history I have. I looked in the regisrty, and the History folder appears to be set to "C:\Users\[my name]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\History." This folder is indeed present, and contains a hidden folder called "History.IE5", another folder called "Low", and a desktop.ini file, dated 10/25/01 (the date I originally installed XP). Inside the "History.IE5" folder are desktop.ini and index.dat files dated about two hours ago today and rigth now, respectively. Inside the Low folder is another folder called History.IE5, and inside that are 13 folders -- all empty -- that have names beginning with "MSHist" and date/time stamps from when I installed Vista. So, does anyone know if some folders are mixed up, or what? It has me stumped. 2. There was no Internet Explorer icon on the desktop after the upgrade was complete, nor is ther one available Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Personalization -> Change desktop icons, which is where an online article said I should look for the icon. Is this a bug or a feature??!! Thanks for taking the time to read this... I'm sure I'll have more!
