    I have found that I just copy the Favorites folder. The only time an Import is needed is if you wish to import the Favorites into another Browser, and then you use the import function in the new browser.

    Favorites folder is in C:, Users, "User Name" (unless of course you have moved it, mine is actually on my Data Partition so that I can point to the same Favorites folder from both Win 7 and Win 8 RP)

    Thanks Ted. I wasn't thinking when I did this, and still wasn't thinking when I posted about it. Shouldn't do computer stuff after 8 PM!!

    I looked for a method to delete a stupid post but there doesn't seem to be one, so I edited out most of it.

    The threads can only be deleted by Moderators and Administrators. I doubt they will delete this thread because there is some useful info in it.

    Hey we are all entitled to some funny posts once in a while. Don't stress it. I make a fool of myself regularly, but I just keep plugging away.
