Is it possible to find where the IE Favorites file is saved on the hard drive so that I can move them to another copy of IE I am using on a different HD? The problem is the Favorites I want are on a Slave drive so I can't use the normal method of Copy Favorites while IE is in use, to then Paste them into the other one. Is it possible to do this? If so, where would the file be & what is it called? Thanks for any help with this.

What version of IE are you using?

If using IE 9 you can go to the little Start click on it, then click on the little drop down menu and click import/export. You will want to do this and then the same on the othe PC.

Here is for IE6, IE7, and IE8: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/211089
