Hello,

My windows 98se machine gave up the ghost. I bought a new xp pro machine and I need to get my explorer favorites onto my new machine.

I saved my "favorites" file from my old machine onto a flash drive and I can't seem to figure out how to get my favorites into Explorer on my new machine.

Please help.

Thanks,
Brian

Not sure about IE7 but IE6 and below is File, Import and Export, Import Favorites and point to the file on your flash drive.

bsaprez,

Copy the folder with Favorites file into new machine.  Make sure the files are not write protected.  In IE, go to File > Import Favorites.

If no joy, copy the Favorites files and subfolders into the Favorites (not the main folder)  Favorites folder in Windows XP is located in C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Favorites or C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\\Favorites folder.
