    Windows Explorer Favorites

    Explorer shows at the Left side favorites, libraries, computer etc. As I wish to duplicate the list of Favorites on another machine, where is the favorites list held? I have searched the registry, but cannot find it

    I made the same mistake at first, but he's not talking about Internet Explorer favorites. He's after those which appear in Windows Explorer.

    (Thanks Microsoft, for calling them both Favorites! Nearly as helpful as most of us being AN Administrator even when we're not THE Administrator. )
