Migrate Bookmarks and Favorites

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN


I have a new computer, and I want to save all the bookmarks from my old computer and install them in my new one. How do I do that?

Internet Explorer (IE) and Firefox both have utilities that can help you do the job.

If you use IE, open it on your old computer and click on File, Import and Export, which opens a wizard. Click on Next, Export Favorites and then Next again.

Now select the Favorites you wish to copy and click Next, Finish . You can then copy them to a thumb drive or even e-mail them to yourself at the new computer.

On the new com­puter follow the same procedure and this time click on Import Favorites.

In Firefox it’s slightly different. Again starting with your old computer, click on Bookmarks, Manage Bookmarks and click on File, Export, then save them to a thumb drive. To import, follow the same steps and this time click on Import. Select the file from the thumb drive and click Next and Open .
