    I was wondering if there is a way of sending all of the sites on my favorites to a disc driectly from the favorites file or do I need to write all of them down?
    Thanks!

    WOW! Thanks! I used the way simpswr said and except for needing to figure out that I was exporting and not importing it took about 5 seconds!
    You saved me so much work!

    Well done! . . (y)

    BTW if you ever need to back up cookies ( for user ID's and passwords ) you do it the same way . . .

    I use Roboform for my IDs and passwords - another great timesaver! (But those I've got written down in my Rolodex because of the day I forgot the password for Roboform (old age) and they won't let you change it - you've got to redo the whole thing!)

    I just wanted to mention that I had the idea to copy and transfer the saved document to my Palm so if anything were to happen and I needed it I'd just be able to synch it back to the computer.
