    I want to email my IE Favorites folder to myself, so I can load them on a new laptop. Any ideas?

    No, the pc's aren't networked yet; that's a bigger problem that's gettin' worked on also...

    Thanks!

    Zip/compress your favourites folder first (right click, send to, compressed folder) and it will send. Unzip it the other end (right click, extract all) to make it usable again.
    Those intructions for WinME/XP which have 'compressed folders' fitted as standard.
