    Is there a way to transfer your favorites in internet explorer from one computer to another? They are both using XP Pro.

    Just copy the files from C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR USERNAME\Favorites on computer 1 to computer 2.

    in IE7 the way i've found to do it is click tools > menu bar

    once that pops up click "import/export" on the file menu and follow the wizard.

    Also good to make a copy of this folder randomly as a backup

    I just right click favorites, select open and then copy and paste them into one of my backup hard drives.

    Or you could copy and paste them into your burner, and back them up that way.
