How can I move my Favorites in IE7 to a new computer? I have an external hard drive to which I could send them if I knew where the file is and then how to retrieve it. thanks,

Your Favourites are stored in C:\Documents and Settings\<User>\Favorites, where <User> refer to your account name.

You can backup the whole folder. And transfer it to your new computer.

Well, I found the answer by looking on IE. There's an import/export option on the File pull-down menu. Sorry to have bothered anyone to answer. Hope this helps others.

Yeah. Sure. I'm not too sure about the IE export button is on where as I don't use IE. :thumbsup:
