Can you migrate Explorer favorites from XP to Windows 7? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to migrate my Explorer favorites from XP to Windows 7?
    Here's the rub, My HD crashed recently and I installed a new HD with Window 7.

    Fortunately I had a complete backup of all data on another HD.  So, I have been able to restore all files and data EXCEPT my Explorer favorites.

    This begs the question, can Explorer favorites be migrated from XP on one hard drive to Windows 7 on another hard drive?

    Thanks, Rob

  • Just copy the contents of C:\documents and settings\youruserID\favorites on the Xp machine to

    C:\Users\youruserid\favorites on your Windows 7 drive

    where your userid is your Windows login userid.
