    You can reach the favourites folder ike that way:
    C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Favorites
    ... Then copy the files to the floppy disk.

      Thanks, Mazinger! I'll give it a go...

        Good luck, let us know the outcome.

        I did this last year when I bought a new computer.

          You will need to build a time machine first.

          Floppy's? That's like an LP right? Pre-millenium hardware

            Wow, I haven't seen a floppy disk drive in ages...

              My PC is so old it has one built in.

                  My PC is almost a year old, almost time for a renewal, but I put a floppy disk drive in my machine when I built it, so a machine doesn't have to be old to have one.

                    I have a floppy that also accepts 13 or so different media cards.

                      I haven't even seen a floppy disk in ages, except for a few days ago; before then, it was months, if not years. I can't remember the last time I used a floppy disk drive or a computer equipped with one.

                      Well, a couple of years ago, I tried to add a floppy drive to my desktop so I could upgrade the BIOS (there was no Windows installer available at the time), but the result was a computer which caught on fire. I don't care much for floppies after that.

                        Must be nice. I'm saving up to build my own new one before I become the sterotypical poor college student. Going to try to get enough for a quadcore.

                          So does mine, it is just a hell of a job to get them out again.

                            I just have card readers on my computer. 2 GB Sandisk cards are a lot more convenient than a 1.44 MB floppy drive. My Favorites wouldn't even fit on a floppy as they take 6 MB of diskspace.

                              A file in Favorites is ~ 4 KB.

                              Does that mean you've more than 1,000 pages saved in your Favorites?
