How do you remove the links folder from Internet Explorer?

Recommended Posts

I did remove the Links folder either and the solution of PITU is the best I can see. Why? It's not impossible that Windows itself or an update or whatever re-enable that folder some reasons and a null file will block that. Just make sure to have system and hidden attributes on that file to make it hidden in your favorites.

The sad part is I don't have an unattended solution for that rigth now.

Come on ...

The problem is not deleting the Links folder: that is easy with a batch file, or simply using delete in the explorer. Your problem is that the Links folder will be re-created next time you open the Internet Explorer. Why, you may ask ... Because IE is configured to show the Links Folder, thus creates it if missing. Right click on an IE toolbar, and uncheck the Links item. Delete the Links folder, and it does not came back. At least not on my box, your actual mileage may vary ...
