Windows 7: Where are my cookies?

Where are my cookies?

Hi everyone. I've really only joined to ask one question.

Where are the cookies stored in Windows 7? I've been playing Gemcraft Chapter 0, a flash game on armorgames.com and I need to find my cookies so I can transfer them to Vista.

I have Windows 7 and Vista on the same HD, so I was hoping I could just copy from one folder to another.

I believe in......

%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Cookies

You have to uncheck "hide protected system files"

I don't know if copying that folder will do what you need but it's a start. Good luck!

It isn't there. There is a cookie file under default user but it's empty.

I'm accessing from Vista by the way. I'm not using Windows 7 at the moment.

Yea sorry...I just had to edit it. You have to go into folder options and uncheck "hide protected system files" to make it show up. Hope this helps.

Also, I don't know if ALL browsers store them here. Maybe just IE. Don't know.

Thanks. I found the cookies, but the one I want isn't there. It's a game save from an online flash game. Elsewhere in this forum someone linked to the adobe website that shows what adobe cookies you have. Where may they be stored on the computer?

I'm mainly using Firefox too.

Adobe Flash will store data on your computer. Read this first post and go to the settings manager. You may be able to find it but I don't know how for sure.

Thanks nate42nd. I found the flash cookies in %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flashplayer\etc. I then copied the whole armorgames folder to my Vista installation.

It's all good now.

Good forum though, I'm learning lots.

Well this certainly saved me asking the question again. Excellent answer, Nate! Saved me a lot of blundering about. Thanks.

In the same folder as told by nate42nd, there is a hidden folder by the name "Low". I found most of the cookies there. Not sure why Windows distributes the cookies in 2 folders though.
