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.

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."
