First of all apologies if this query is not in the most appropriate forum.

I am about to upgrade my PC and was wondering if there is a way to map my favourite websites (100+) over to my new PC without having to individually copy over each URL. At the moment I am copying and pasting each website address from my favourites into a word document, which I will then have to open and save again (individually) in favourites via my new PC.

Many thanks

an idea... Jun 18, 2007

Here's a suggestion: try File --> Import and Export --> Export Favourites. I am sorry I don't know what comes next because I use Firefox for a long time now, however, I suppose, there will be created a file which can be then imported in a new browser using the same function [File --> Import and Export --> Import Favourites]

Good luck

copy the folder Jun 18, 2007

Hi Tracey,

You can copy the favourites in one go:

C:\documents and settings\(your user name)\favourites (usually marked with a star icon)

Just copy this folder to the same place on your new hard drive.
