You will have to copy the URL of all your favorites then paste them into an email OR click My Computer from the desktop or Start Menu/ Drive C/Documents and Settings/Your User Name. Open the favorites folder, hold down the CTRL and A keys at the same time to highlight all the entries. RIGHT click, send to Compressed File. Attach the zip file to your email. The file will not attach if it is over the size limit for your email.

Alternative, download and install xmarks from here: http://download.xmarks.com/download/all

Follow the steps and register. You will be sent an email for account verification. After verification, you can go to this address
https://my.xmarks.com/ to log in. After you get signed in a page with all your favorites is displayed and you can click on them to be taken to a website.

You will be able to access your favorites from any computer, no matter where you are.

Or alternatively a free Online Favorites manager.

I've never used the service, so have no experience with it. I use a USB drive with a portable app browser with my bookmarks already on it.
