When you are asking about
"Favorites" from Outlook, these are the same "Favorites" that are on your
Internet Explorer program.
I found another way to
make a separate file of these internet addresses.
- Go into Internet Explorer.
- On your home page (or maybe
when you are at any address), click "File" on the top toolbar - far
- Then choose "Import or Export".
- Up pops the Import/Export Wizard.
In the Wizard,
choose " next".
- You have 4 choices of what
to import/export: Import Favorites, Export Favorites, Import Cookies,
Export Cookies. Since you want to make a file of your favorites, click on
- You will see your Favorites folder
perhaps with some sub folders. I highlighted the top level "Favorites"
folder to include all the sub-folders whether I wanted to send them or not.
I can edit and delete some from the finished file later. Click
- The Wizard asks you to choose a
file or directory to send the new exported file to. Click "browse" and find
a directory on your drive where you want to keep this. I didn't try to add
this file to another file because it is an ".htm" file, and I don't have any
other .htm files. I chose my C:/My Documents/Computer Information/
directory. You can rename the file too (either now or do it later from
Windows Explorer). Click "save".
- On Wizard page, click "next".
- On the completing Wizard page,
- You will see a message saying
'successfully exported favorites'. Click OK.
- Minimize or close Internet
- Bring up Windows
- Go to the drive, directory, and
folders where you put your new exported file. You will see that the file
description ends with '.htm'.
- If you double click on the file to
open it, it shows you a list of all the bookmarks or favorites. They are in
blue because they are active htm links or shortcuts to the web
- You can edit this file - take out
any other shortcuts that you don't want to send to someone else or keep.
Close the file, and exit Windows Explorer.
- In Outlook, when you create an
e-mail, you can now attach (paperclip) this file to it.
- The recipient would need to
reverse the above process by going into their Internet Explorer and choosing
to "Import Favorites".
I hope this works for
