    IE Favorites Gone

    I recently upgraded from Win98 to Win2KProf. The process was a mess, but that's another issue...Question: All of my IE Favorites are gone. Why aren't they there and what can I do to get them to show up now in Win2KProf?

    Thanks in advance.

    Each setup is different, but your old favorites might have been in c:windowsfavorites or in a deeper folder based on your profile/username. Can you find this folder anywhere? If so, you probably can copy all those shortcuts to your new favorites folder.

    <font color=blue>Afterthought:</font color=blue> IE has an "import favorites" option. Maybe it will scour your computer and find them for you??

    Thanks for replying....I did get it to work, however, by logging in under the default. Using this user, I was able to relocate the favorites.

    Thanks again.
