If you are still running WIndows XP and are looking to export your Internet Explorer favorites to a thumb drive or other media source you can follow these simple steps:

  1. Select File -> Import and Export. This will start the “Import and Export” wizard.
  2. Select Export and the click on “next.”
  3. Select Favorites and click on “next.”
  4. In the next window you can accept the default Save Directory or choose a new one. I suggest you select “Desktop” so you can easily find the file again. Click on “next.”
  5. Finally, click on “finish” and your Favorites will be saved to disk.
