Thanks, Koan. I've read it. But I know what Favorites is and how I can export it. My question was about ALL IE HISTORY that is not located in Favorites. Is there any way to find file or folder where it's located?
Yes, I mean links in IE that can be displayed by "View" > "Explorer Bar" > "History". But the question is where can I find the same list of these links in My Computer? Maybe special folder? Or is it written somewhere in registry only? I want to have an opportunity to save and copy this list.

Ok, these IE files and links are stored in "index.dat files."
For Windows XP or Windows 2000 - index.dat files can be found here:
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Cookies\index.dat
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\LocalSettings\History\History.IE6\index.dat
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\History\History.IE6\MSHistXXXXXXXXXXX\index.dat
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Temporary InternetFiles\Content.IE6\index.dat
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\UserData\index.dat
(Note: If you only have IE5 installed change the above refs to such from the IE6 noted.)
You will probably need a utility program to read any of these files.
Google for a .dat file reader - there are a couple of freeware & paid progs available.
You choose what you want to work with for these.
The only easy day was yesterday.
