ie changeover, lot of smart cookies here

OK I didn't really know where to put this, so.. here goes nothing

for x mas I upgradedto a newer laptop.. and spent the time, emailing myself all the links to my favorates saved in internet exployer

now Mr. Murphy had other plans, the computer has a fault harddrive.. so they sent a new one.. well they sent two.. the first replacement was wrong..
so, anyways I have the new one.. and there has to be a better way to transfer the saved favorates on the old(er) computer to the new one, without having to email them all to myself. all over again (yes I deleted all the emails, that have been to easy,)

any help.. or a link to what,how,etc..
otherwise I'm gonna be up all night again.. copy, then email then open then save.. it was fun the first time as I organized them all into folders,, but once was enough..
and no back up disc.. as it acted up after only 4 days.. as long as you on't shut it down it's fine.. let it hibernate, or shut it down. and you get to play restart for 40 minutes..

HELP

Maybe in the 'Lounge' 'Off Topic section.

I used to know how to copy Favorites/Bookmarks to a disc & load them on another PC but, that was with the older/easier versions of IE. I'm sure someone on here can help tho'.
What version/versions of IE are you using?

there is a folder that you can simply copy the entire contents over... In Windows 7, it should be under C:\Users\username\Favorites. You need to find the favorites folder on the old computer and copy them into this folder on the new computer. Replace the word "username" with your actual user name on your new computer.

You can reach this folder by clicking on the Start menu, and then type in C:\Users and then press [enter]. Then browse to your user name, and then browse to the favorites folder.

This is NOT where the folder will be on your old computer, unless it is also Windows 7.

Any computer repair shop should be able to copy your harddrive to your new computer for a reasonable price. Call around to compare prices. I have an external harddrive to save important stuff on. About $80.oo at Walmart.

I have IE8, but I don't think much has changed. At the top of your IE browser page, click on "File", then click on "Import and Export". Click on "Export to a file", then click on "Favorites". Select the folder you want to export, then export it to the file. You should be able to email the file to your new computer, or save the file on a disc, USB key, or external hard-drive. Then transfer it to your new computer.

Hope this works for you.
Ed

To import the file into your new computer, again, at the top of IE, click on "File", then click on "Import and Export", click on "Import from a file", then click on "Favorites, then browse to the file.
