favorites

Posted: 08-26-2008, 03:04 PM
I have Vista on my laptop and hate it. I want to add FAVORITES to internet
explorer from my desktop.

I use to go to my documents and paste it into the favorites file. I cannot
find anything like that. I found an Import Favorites tab, but that would only
let me do one file at a time. I dont have time to do a few hundred files
manually.

Any guidance?

There is a Favorites folder in your user directory. Open it and copy
whatever Favorites you like to it.

%windir%\Users\your-username\Favorites

Hi, fkosmakos.

How about in C:\Users\fkosmakos\Favorites?

If your User account name is not "fkosmakos", then edit that path to change
"fkosmakos" to YOUR User name.

Or, just press Start and type "favorites" (with or without quotes), then
press Enter. You should see YOUR Favorites folder in Windows Explorer. The
full pathname to that folder should be in Explorer's Address Bar, although
you may need to scroll to see the C:\Users... part.
