Hi Elaine, it sounds like that when you've added GR to your favourites that you've done it while you've had a thread open and that thread has been subsequently been deleted. (I had something similar).

I'd suggest deleting that from your favourites and then creating a new one from perhaps the GR homepage.

How do I do that MC? I don't know how to add favourites....if u explain,I will try myself,otherwise I will have to wait till I see my daughter.(I also don't know how to remove things from favourites bar)
Once I have done things a couple of times,then I am ok.

Hi Elaine - it all depends which browser you are using (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc) as the technique is slightly different depending on which.

Do you have a row of little icons near the top of your screen, under the white box that shows the website address?

Googled it and done it! Now have up to date bookmark favourites on Chrome on laptop and Safari on iPad! Very chuffed with myself! Now just have to find out how to remove the first ones,cos I got 2 on comp and 2 on iPad! Lol

It may not work for all situations, but you could try this

Find your 'drop down' list of 'favourites' and look for the one you want to remove. Rather than click on it, do a right click and select 'delete'.

iPad is easy ... Hit the bookmark icon (top left- open book icon) Click edit .. ( RH side) little red no entry signs appear ... Tap in the sign ... Red delete appears .. Tap can also .. Put finger on the little shadow bars ( on the RH side ... No entry on left ) and slide hi up and down to rearrange the order ..

As DET says ... Right clicking on Laptop and delete delete
