    What favorites are you referring to? Web links in Internet Explorer? In that case there is Export/Import in the File menu. You could for instance create a file and store it on a floppy. Then import it on your new PC.

    Yes, yes, I'm aware of the English's love of unnecessary silent vowels, but I was asking what sort of favorites he was referring to.

    Just copy the Favorites folder to floppy disk.

    I don't know the English personal folder names, so do a search on your computer for "favorites" and it'll find it for you. Right-click and send it to floppy - or copy and paste it to it.

    But you english people add a "U" to everything.

    Color
    Favorite
    Favor

    Less letters, one less key stroke, one less letter leading towards writers cramp.

    And how is it that you can pronuonce "schedule" with a "SH" sound, but "school" with a "SK" sound? They both start with "SCH"!!!

    Stupid English people:rolleyes:



    hehe j/j :D

    It's just different, that's all :)
     
  10. They don't add anything, they just don't take anything away. :D We spell the same up here too.

    OK, so you did Export?

    So, copy the file (bookmark.htm?) to the new PC and do an Import there.

    Good luck! :)
