    saving favorites?

    ok, I picked up a 64GB USB what ever you call them, and this is a scandisk brand name. I need to keep everything on the favorites list. is there an easy way to transfer it all to the USB thing? if not, how do I do it. keep in mind I do have the wire and software that transfers information from one PC to another. not sure if that helps.

    If I understand the context correctly, Explorer.exe should be all you need to copy from HD to USB stick.

    If you mean the Internet Favorites or Bookmarks, your browser should have an Export feature in it, just point to the new drive when doing it. I use several of the Sandisk drives, no problems. All that has to be done is plug it into a USB port, no cables needed. It will pop up a screen about what you want to do with it, make a choice or close it as the Export function mentioned should find it.

    look up, menu bar, 4th from left. where it says favorites. I need to save everything there and to make sure it works after I reboot

    the computer. and I also need to save everything here, in this forum, because I do fall back to use some of it from time to time.
