I just bought a new Windows 7 computer with Internet Explorer preloaded. How do I transfer favorites from the old one to the new one?

Do you see the File, Edit, etc menu bar at the top?

If not then right click on any of the toolbars and select Menu Bar.

From there go to File and select Import and Export its near the bottom.

You will want to save these to a file, then move it to the other computer then import those settings.

Easy Transfer will do exactly what you want and a lot more besides.
You will need a remote hard drive or a usb flash drive.Depending on how much data there is to transfer,either a 4or8 Gb stick will do the job.
I have used it many times and saved so much time you wouldn't believe.
