How do I get my favorites back

What did you do to loose them ?
If you did not make a backup of either your favorites or your computer then I fear you have lost them and will need to gather new ones.

For the future:
if you want to backup your favorites, then you will have to export them:
Internet Explorer:
To export the Favorites folder, follow these steps:
  • Start Internet Explorer.
  • On the File menu, click Import and Export, and then click Next.
  • Click Export Favorites and then click Next.
  • Click Favorites and then click Next.
  • Type the name of the file that you want to export the favorites to.
Then you can import them anew when you loose them.

For instance if you would use Firefox as browser you can use sync to have all of your favorites on all of your computers.
Your favorites are backed up on your cloud sync account and can be seen on every computer where you connect your sync account.

Hope that helps you.

How can I re-install but keep current bookmarks

In all Browsers, you can select EXPORT, usually from the FILE pulldown menu. If you export your bookmarks to a place on your hard drive and then copy to a memory stick, you can then IMPORT them when you are done upgrading the OS. Or you can export directly to a USB attached memory stick. In any case, export before you do the upgrade and then bring up the new browser, and import the bookmarks.

If you're talking about some of your web browser faves, then you can use Internet Explorer's built-in 'export' feature, or even Chrome's, so I'll tell you how to do that next. But the way I like to do it, if it's Internet Explorer, is like this:
  1. Find your 'My Computer' or 'Computer' icon on your desktop and double-click it, or, if it's not there, in your Start Menu (at bottom left, click your 'Start' button, then click on 'My Computer' or 'Computer' in the right column).
  2. Now, double-click on your 'C:' drive (a.k.a. 'Local Disk', 'System', 'Windows', etc.).
  3. In Vista and '7', double-click on 'Users'. If you're using 'XP', double-click on 'Documents and Settings', then 'Users'...
  4. Double-click on your User Name.
  5. Find the 'Favorites' folder and RIGHT-CLICK IT, then left-click on 'Send To', then left-click on the Letter assigned to your Flash Drive (':E', ':F', etc.).
  6. That's it! You should have an entire copy of your faves on your Cruzer, so go to it and check (you should be able to look through all your links; double-click some to see if you go to that page!).
NOW--the boring, old, NORMAL way (for Internet Explorer Version 8, and maybe 7):
  1. Open Internet Explorer.
  2. Click on 'Favorites', then click on the little down-arrow next to the words 'Add to Favorites'.
  3. Now click 'Import and Export', then click 'Export to a File', then 'Next'.
  4. Check-mark only 'Favorites', then click 'Next'.
  5. Your Favorites folder should come up automatically in the pop-up browser Window, so click 'Next' again.
  6. At this point, you can choose to send it directly to your Flash Drive, or wherever it's going to go by default, then find that file and copy it to your Cruzer, so--you guessed it--I'm going to tell you to just click 'Browse', find your Cruzer's 'drive letter' again from that drop-down, and then click 'Export'.
  7. Done!
When performing this procedure the 'Windows' way, be careful not to do it over twice, as you'll end up with doubles, then triples, etc. I like 'My' way because you can then go into the resulting folders now on your Cruzer and navigate through them, deleting any you see you don't want to carry around with you!
S'fun! Hope this helps! Mike

How do I unzip downloaded file on Vista and copy it to floppy disk,via usb to floppy converter? Thank you. Cathy.

Windows Vista has a built-in function for unzipping files in Explorer. Just right-click the filename and select Unzip from the menu. But I never use the built-in Windows function, because it's incredibly slow and has limited functionality.

My favorite is 7-Zip, which you can download from It will extract files of .zip, .rar, and many other archival formats, and it can split large files into small sections to be stored on several floppies.

7-zip adds a line in the context (right-click) menu of Explorer for 7-zip>, so you can unzip files right from Explorer. Splitting files requires starting 7-zip and finding the file in it's own explorer-like interface. Right-click the filename, and select Split... A little dialog box appears asking what size chunks you want to split the file into. In my test just now it defaulted to 1.44M floppy disk-sized sections. You also choose the folder you want the new files to go to. The actual splitting operation, even on this old Win 2000 computer splitting a 3.6M file, was virtually instantaneous.

The program is free for personal or business use.

I have Windows XP and I am trying to copy my favorites onto a CD so I have a backup. I tried the import/export function but it is not working. Can they be copied to a cd or not?

You should be able to save you favorites to a CD. Try using the Import/Export Wizard again but, this time, save them to your desktop (don't try to export them directly to the CD).

I assume that you're using Internet Explorer. Open your Web browser then click File. Next, click Import and Export. This time when you get to the part where you choose a location to import the file, choose Desktop. Just click browse, when the window opens click Desktop then save.

After you have exported the file to your desktop, you should find a file on your desktop called bookmarks.htm. Next, copy (or send) this file to the blank CD. Once that's done, open the CD to see if the file was copied.

Hope this helps!
