    Update the shortcut you use (desktop/favorites/links). It has change, but updating the shortcut works.

    Okay - this is what I have found to be happening over the last few changes from XP to NTFS and back to XP:

    My old XP favorite link takes me to here:
    http://www.xp-erience.org/forum/search.php?s=&action=showresults&getnew=true&searchid=126737

    - which displays 15 pages of threads going back to yesterday afternoon. (Without doing a "searching" page)

    My current desktop short cut goes to:
    http://www.xp-erience.org/forum/search.php?s=&action=getnew

    - which gives me the "searching" page and then ends up at:

    http://www.xp-erience.org/forum/search.php?s=&action=showresults&getnew=true&searchid=127288

    - which shows 2 pages of threads.

    Now bear in mind that the last three digits (288 in this case) will change as the most recent threads change.

    However the last three digits for my favorite one (737) does not change when a new response is added at the beginning of the list. But it still shows the same ones in the same order as the current desktop shortcut one does - it just lists a lot more threads.

    So what am I trying to say?

    Dang if I know - but I just thought it was curious how things acted when ya had favorites and shortcuts set up just ever so slightly different. :confused: :confused:

    I can view new posts, but it only shows 10 to a page, regardless of my user settings. Sure wish I could view more at one time. Can I?
