I have Int. Explorer 6.0, on Windows XP.

If I put my Favorites in order, and want to export that exact order to another PC, how do I export that to my Flashdrive, then ontop another PC?

When I've done this before, the order of my long list of Favorites changes, goes to alphabetical, which I don't want.

Thanks for any help... please give it in baby steps, as I'm no Bill Gates...

Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Unless you find a freeware 3rd party app, you'll need to pay for one to accomplish what you want. The only other way to do this for free is with a registry modification which I don't think you want to do. Registry modifications can wreak havoc if not done correctly.

Here is a link for how to do it with a registry modification : http://windowsxp.mvps.org/IEFAQ.htm#menuorder

Warning Registry Modifications are dangerous if not done correctly. Always Back up your registry prior to making ANY changes!!!

Be (Registry Modification) Safe

Did I mention it's not wise to play with your registry unless you know what you are doing? :thumbsup:

Thanks for the reply...
If there's a program out there that will do the job, I don't mind paying for it... any suggestions/ideas?
Thanks again,
