skynergy, I believe Favorites is located in, C:\Windows\Favorites
On win98 machines....
Try that.  Let us know...if not do file files and search for FAVORITES
that should come up with the path

I thought it should be there too.  On my home system it is, but I am not connected to an NT server.
At work, they were located in the user's folder.  If you log into a server the favorites are located under the user folder on the local machine.  Either way, the method of Start-Find-FAVORITES works well.

If you have XP it will be under c:documents and settings/ then whatever your username.

If you have multiple users in 98 it should be under C:\WINDOWS\Profiles then your username.

If it's just conventional win98 then where those guys said.

Easiest way to find it is as Wakeup indicated, as depending on the OS you are running it will be in a different area. Dave

Hehe....I was guessing on it being a 98 box....since you asked the question in Win98.
Did you find it?

I saw that 98 is more of a popular topic than 2000 so I placed it there also knowing that there wouldn't be too much of a difference. Thanx for noticing, haha. And, yes, the responses were even quicker than I thought it would be.
