Appreciate some assistance.

Have MSN Explorer, and think that IE is much better. In particular, IE gives you more options to manage and organize Favorites.

Querried MSN, and it is not possible to export Favorites from MSN Explorer to IE. Don't want to switch and loose Favorites.

Is there any way that Favorites in MSN Explorer can be saved in the PCs hard drive?

Look in the folder c:\windows\favorites. Are all your favorites there?

Max19,

Thank you for your reply.

Unfortunately, tried that already, and Favorites are not there.

Have no clue what MSN Explorer does with Favorites. Maybe it keeps them in the server??

Search your hard drive for one of your favorites. They must be there somewhere.

just in case you didn't want to use MSN Explorer at all for connection or anything, you don't have too.

Just use a standard dun connection.

use one of the standard access numbers.

Then in the username box for the connection just put


MSN/username

username being your msn username.

MSN the old way. MSN Explorer bad.


then of course you would use your password.

and under the dun properties you would disable

log onto network

net beui

annd ipx/spx compatable.


can't say about the favorites in MSN explorer, but wouldn't doubt it if they were stored online or in a some kind of dat file. Probably not though. Anyways, search your hardrive like Max19 said.
