change favorites to favourites


Recommended Posts

Probably one of those questions everyone else knows the answer to.

Yesterday did start >favorites>right click on the word and rename to favourites (the English spelling!!) but today when I turned on it had reverted back. Could anyone tell me how to make it permanent?

You're not allowed to change the name of that folder directly, because it is a shell folder.

You may have to:

1) change the value Favorites in the key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerShell Folders

2) restart, and then

3) move the contents of Favorites into Favourites

I'm too lazy to describe how to use regedit to do this... so if you don't know how, Tarun will fill you in.
