Windows Explorer Favourites

Hi All,

Another question linked to the removal of my NAS drive.

My Windows Explorer (8) favourites are stored on the NAS, I've copied them to my PC drive but how do I redirect Explorer to look at the new location on my PC rather than the NAS?

Many thanks,

In Win7, the Favourites folder is located in C:\Users\[your profile name]\Favorites

Copy all your bookmarks & paste them in the above folder. Then Open IE8 to verify that they are as you need them. F

Hi Crossbow,

At the moment my favourites are in a folder on an off-board NAS drive what is being removed.

I have copied them to the location you have said but I need to make IE8 "look" that location rather than the NAS drive.

Any ideas?

Ah, right.

Right-click the Favorites folder on the NAS drive, & select Properties. Click on the Location tab, enter this path in the field: C:\Users\[your profile name]\Favorites & click on Move.

Where [your profile name] is the name you logged in with. G
