Hi everyone

 

You know, the last time my hard drive crashed, I could have lost all the info I had stored in my favorites.

 

The only reason I didn't lose it was due to the fact that my son's friend has hard drive recovery software.

 

Moving forward, I'd like to be able to store my favorites on my external hard drive as I do my documents, pics, etc.

 

Now, I am able to copy each individual link or whatever but it is quite time-consuming.

 

Since I have a folder in my favorites called "thyroid stuff", I'd love to be able to copy the entire folder into a document
but Word tells me it can't.

 

Anyone have any ideas?

 

I would be most appreciative.

 

Thanks a bunch!

 

Carol

This is what I do carol.
It is long and tedious and time consuming LOL.
I cut and paste all links that are in favorites to a document and then save it. THa tmeans going to each and every site and copping the link and saving it to the document. It is the only way that I know how to do it.
Although I do have the nack for doing things the long and hard way LOL. IT works though.

Hi Angel

 

That sounds pretty similar to what I'm currently doing - there HAS to be an easier way - yikes!

 

Glad I'm not the only one doing things the hard way :)

I called my ex because this was something I needed to know too. Here are instructions for firefox. If you have IE, you'll have to hunt around to find the same procedure.

 

In firefox, click on the "bookmarks tab" and go down to "organize bookmarks". There will be 4 buttons and the one on the far right looks like a star. Click on it and go down to "export html". This stores a file on your desktop as its default but you can send it to a flash drive or external drive. Then if you lose your data, you can then use the "import html" button to restore your data. Hope this helps. If you don't have firefox and want to give it a try it will import your IE favorites and then you can save them from firefox. I've not had any problems with firefox or thunderbird but Tammy who posts here had a lot of problems with it. It could be because I use a mac but I also had firefox on my old PC with no problems.

Thanks a bunch, Monica!

 

Ex's come in handy once and awhile, don't they? :)

 

Usually one of my kids answers these types of questions - I have three sons ranging
in age from 12 to 28 (don't even bother asking :) ) yet none of them had (or wanted
to have :) ) the answer to this question.

 

I no longer use Firefox 'cuz certain sites I need to visit frequently only work well with IE but I'm
going to give it a shot nonetheless.

 

I'll be printing your instructions out - lol

 

Thanks again!
