Two Favorites folders?

Hi I'm trying to locate my favorites folder.

I am using vista. I have gone to the c drive>users>favorites (i am the only user) however the favorites in there appear to be folders which i have previously deleted from the web browser - and some folders which dont appear which i have added to the vista web browser.

might there be another favorites folder somewhere!?

thanks

Do a search from your Start Menu - that should bring up any your Favourites Folders that are on your PC.

Try looking in My Documents

i use both chrome and occasionally IE. The favorites i am concerned about are the ones on chrome.

not in 'my documents' - hmm different location eh, where might that be? searching for a folder name or a favorite name has not located them...

Try pressing Ctrl+Shift+B to show the 'bookmark manager' (which is a window that shows ALL your bookmarks, imported and otherwise). Works in Win 7 but not sure about Vista.

Should have added that Favourites in Chrome are know as Bookmarks enter link description here

woolwell- i want to just copy them and then import them to a new laptop. ive found the folder you mention, however cant see a folder specifically for 'bookmarks' that i could copy.

you are right i have copied IE favorites, so i want to find the folder with the bookmarks.

the folder you mention has other folder like :cache, databases, extensions, local storage and many others! what do i need to copy over to my new laptop?

when i select bookmarks>import bookmarks and settings it give me only the option "microsoft internet explorer" or "google toolbar" - i see no option for me to select the HTML file...
