Default Way to save computer favorites?

Hey Folks - I need your help - my not so D daughter dropped my laptop and the screen is falling off - don't ask - I am in the process of backing it up and hoping my warranty for anything happening to it at Best Buy will help - that said - I have tons of Favorite websites - mostly stampin folks - somewhere sometime someone (pretty vague LOL) posted about a way to save them - maybe it was a website?

Anyone able to help this not very computer savy but very unhappy Mom??

TIA
Andrea

Under Bookmarks, then Organize Bookmarks, there should be an import and backup option...but I'm using Firefox as a browser (and can't figure it out on Internet Explorer - although I tried!)

Would it be Delicious - http://delicious.com/help/learn. That stores your favourites online so you can access them from any PC. There's a Delicious download to integrate with Firefox. Probably IE too, for all I know. Once you download and install it it will offer to synchronise with your current favourites.

If you use Firefox, there's a utility called MozBackup which is a tiny download, but it will save all your bookmarks/favourites, saved passwords (if you want). It's brilliant! Saved my bacon more than once. Bummer about your laptop, though.

For Internet Explorer: Under File, then Import and Export, then choose Export to a File, you then have a choice of Favourites, Feeds or Cookies...select favourites and follow the on screen instructions until it asks you where you want to save and you are golden.

(I'm Irish, and VERY STUBBORN, LOL!)

Very cool site. I had no idea it existed...PLUS you could save all your faves from home and access them from work (ahem, if you *did* that sort of thing...chuckle)

Oh yes!! DH uses it, I must admit I don't. But that's because all mine are regularly backed up with MozBackup, and I don't have internet access at work. In fact recently they made the firewall so strong that our network couldn't even communicate with our controlling computer in the lab next door - we couldn't work for two days till they sorted it!
