hi guys
i'm quitting the day job soon & have 6yrs worth of book marked favourites. rather than cut & paste them all as links. is there anyway to copy them & add them to my home favourites list?
info appreciated :)

If you use Firefox you can export bookmarks: Bookmarks>Organise Bookmarks>Import & Backup>Export

Not sure if you can do it in Internet Explorer though.

Can do it in IE too, under file, import and export, does cookies too, so you don't have to remember passwords

you can also just copy the favourites folder in IE to someplace (like a USB memory stick :wink:)

Going forward....get yourself a U3 USB drive....Firefox and favourites is installed and goes where you goes....no non-work stuff on works PC, no history trail. Get home plug it in and carry on surfing :wink:
