Or copy the C:\Windows\favorites folder and put them on the floppy.

Then in XP just paste them to:

C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Favorites

Excellent bit of work there Chris. It's a big advantage for people to be able to see the actual graphics from within windows own programs when they are asking for guidance.

I know you have put a lot of work into your help section and it already covers many aspects of working with windows programs. Well done and thanks. It is a big help, (especially for the people new to PC's) to be able to see the answer explained in the same format as they will see on their own machine. J.
