Favourites location

  collinsc 19:52 19 Oct 2011


I am looking at a favourites folder on:

computer>acer (c)>users> my name>favorites and i think this is an old list of favorites as it has many i deleted yrs ago! can i delete these favorites? where might my other favorites be stored?

i am using google chrome and i am the only user of this laptop.

As you refer to "Favorites" I assume you are using Internet Explorer. The quickest way to find your current favorites folder is to press your Windows key + R and then in the Run box type "favorites" (without inverted commas). Enter, or click OK.

thanks, that has taken me to a diff folder, i am using chrome now (which i appreciate is bookmarks) - looks like the old IE favorites are stored also

scratch that last post! they arent duplicated... it is just the favorites in the folders are not the truth about the favourits i have in chrome i.e. a folder shows a link to 5 pages, i actualy have about 30 links... why arent they showing!?

Sea Urchin. Thanks for that - note you correctly spelt it the US way - favorites. When I tried favourites it came up with some of my music stuff!
