    Question Internet Explorer Favorite List Saving

    I am going to reformat my hard drive within a day or two. Does anyone know of a way to save my favorites list in IE to a floppy disk so I dont have to write down the URL's of lots and lots of sites?

    If it is possible, a path to a specific folder to save would be most useful!


    Thanks!

    don't forget to export your outlook settings and save the pst too!

    Open Internet Explorer
    At the top right under the blue window bar go to FILE and then IMPORT / EXPORT

    A "wizard" window will open that will walk you through.

    When you get your system rebuilt, use the wizard to put them back.

    Don't forget, once you've rebuilt your system, to go to Tools and choose Windows Update and patch your system.

    Have fun
