How do you save your favorites in internet explorer? And is it possible to import them back in after changing OS's? Thanks Rob

Re: IE Favorites

by deeda In reply to IE favorites

What we do here is we cut the favorites and paste them on a folder on the network and then after installing the new OS we cut them from that network folder and paste it where the favorites is. Some times this doesnt work so we just copy the contentin the folder and paste it into the Favorites folder on the new OS.
Hope that helps!

copy not cut, do not move

by glyall In reply to Re: IE Favorites

If you cut the file/s then paste the to a different directory sometimes the permission of the file/s and directories might not have the some permission later.

If you move any file/s to a new directory the file/s now have the permission that the directory is set at.

If you copy the file/s to a new directory the file/s will have the permission that they were created with. The file/s are still on the old PC, if they did not copy right to the new PC, you can copy them at a later date if needed.

I do the copy way. I only copy the file/s to a new PC for the user ONLY after having them logon to the new PC.

good luck

Floppy copy

by Deadly Ernest In reply to look

What has been said so far will work. I have found that sometimes loading the software will wipe out the favorites folder. Most will fit on a floppy so i just copy the folder to floppy and then import it into the new version later.

If you copy into the new version you wipe out anything that may have been loaded, if you import the two files are merged. Thus in an office environment where new corporate links may have been added to the favorites the import option retains the new and adds in the old.

Also by copy to floppy the person can take it with them and becomes responsible for deciding which ones to keep.
