    I would like to get my bookmarks off my hard drive and store them on a floppy disk. Then I would like to bring them back on to my hard drive for use in my browser again. How do I do that? I am using Internet Explorer. Thanks.

    In xp go to the C drive to documents and settings to your folder, the one with your name on it. If the documents and settings folder isn't showing, tell it to show the folders. Once you see the folders, you can go on in and you will see a folder that looks like a star. Inside that folder is all your favorites.

    Just select all and then copy to the A drive.

    It is NOT in the Windows Directory in XP. Liz
