    If I wish to transfer the Internet Explorer Favourites from a Win98se
    system to a Win XP Home SP2 system, how do I do it?

    So far what I have tried hasn't worked.

    I copied the files from

    C:\Windows\Favourites on the 98 machine to

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Favorites on the XP one.

    I have 5 user accounts set up on the XP machine. Two are admin the
    other three are limited.

    When I went back into Explorer none of the links show up in

    Do I need to copy these Favourites to each of the individual user
    favourites folder? All the Favourites I wish to copy, I want to be
    available to all the users, that is why I copied them into the folder
    I did for All Users.

    Thanks for any help with this one.

    it to a floppy or CD

    On the new system click File, Import Export and choose to import the
