" Dear Dennis,

I just finished reading your article which detailed how to sort the Start Menu. My question is somewhat related and deals with the 'Favorites' listed in Internet Explorer. Unfortunately, my Favorites list goes on and on and it's a real pain to find the site I want to visit. Could you please tell me how to transfer this list to a CD so I can start over? "

My response:

If you want to sort and organize your favorites, refer to these articles:

And, if you want to export your favorites for backup purposes:

  • Load IE
  • Click File -> Import and Export
  • Click Export Favorites
  • Follow the dialogue

Side note: to erase your favorites, refer to this article and simply erase all the entries.
