Resolved Question

Favorite Icons

by Walt H / March 25, 2013 12:33 AM PDT

Brand new Dell 8500 XPS running Win 8 64 bit with IE 10. I transferred my favorites from my Win VISTA machine using Easy Transfer which caused the lost of many IE Fav Icons. Sometimes when I click on a favorite the icon will show up and some won't even though they are present on my Win VISTA machine.

Is there away to restore those Fav Icons which are supposed to be there? I realize all websites don't support the Fav Icons.

Export old IE favorites to an HTML file, then import them to new IE or any other browser...voila! Works vice versa too.
