IE8 to IE9 - a few questions

G'day,

I'm about to make the leap from IE8 to IE9.

Will all my favorites under the Favorites menu, and all my shortcuts under the Favorites Bar port across into the IE9 equivalent?

Regards,
Golden

Hello Golden.

In a word, yes.

You can access them under Favorites on the Menu toolbar or by clicking View favorites, feeds, and history, which is the star icon at the top-right of the browser window.

You can also use the Alt+C keyboard combination to access your favorites.

I would though be inclined to backup your favorites first, just in case anything does go wrong.

Cool. Thanks Seavixen. I used the File > Import and Export option to write the favorites and cookies to a file. Should that be sufficient?

Regards,
Golden

Yes, that'll do nicely.

Chances are you won't need the backup, but better to be safe than sorry.

Well, that was easy - everything just ported across automatically. Thanks Seavixen.
