Windows98 Favorites List

by searcher21-half / March 28, 2005 10:16 AM PST

I'm having problems exporting my Favorites List from Windows98. I get a message that says it worked but when I check there is only one address in there. I'm open to any suggestions. TIA.

What procedure
by MarkFlax Forum moderator / March 28, 2005 4:35 PM PST

Searcher, what procedure are you using?

Do you mean the Favorites list from your Internet Explorer on the Win 98 computer to Internet Explorer on your Win XP computer?

If so, the procedure you should be using is this;

On the Win 98 computer, open up Internet Explorer, goto File > Import and Export and in the wizard select Export Favorites. Then go through the wizard to save your favorites file to a convenient place on the Win 98 hard disk.

Find that file, and decide how you are going to transfer it to the new computer.

On the new computer, open up IE, goto File > Import and Export, and in the wizard, select Import Favorites.

Import/export Favorites
by jkp / March 29, 2005 12:36 PM PST

The IE export feature is essentially designed to allow you to export to Netscape or Mozilla--it produces a single HTML file containing all your favorites as clickable links. Export to a desktop file and then transfer it via network or floppy to your other computer where you import from the file.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
