How to define the order of favorite sites in IE 6.0, please?

  1. Hi all!

    I just would like to know how can I (if possible, of course) to define the order of my favorite sites in internet explorer 6.0...

    Let me try to explain better: I have more than one thousand of favorite sites listed in the net browser (IE 6.0) of my main PC. I need to transfer these data (of fav. sites) to my another PC, and I would like to do it, KEEPING THE SAME ORDER (which was defined by me) that these sites are currently listed in my main PC... It seems that, when I copy these kind of files from one PC to another, the Windows, in an automatic way, put all them in an alphabetic order (from A to Z); but this is not, necessarily, the order that I wish to transfer... I would like to avoid the hard work of to have to define, again, site by site, the order that I wish...

    I have Win XP PRO SP1 and Internet Explorer 6.0

    Well, that's it...

    Any hint / information will be very appreciated!

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Rather than export, use a USB-key (or via network) and COPY them over.
    Copy the whole directory C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Local Settings\Favorites onto that key, then copy that from the key onto your new PC into: C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Local Settings
    The existing Favorites will be overwritten.
