Windows 7: How can I replace the old favorites with new favorites in IE7?

How can I replace the old favorites with new favorites in IE7?

Hi everyone, I use Firefox as my default browser, and over time my favorites have changed some. My question is, can i replace the old favorites in IE7 with the current ones I have on Firefox? I tried importing them thinking they would overwrite the old ones, but it did not seem to work. So, if anyone can refer me to a tutorial, or can help me figure this out, it would be greatly appreciated!

Hello Rob,

If you don't want any of the favorites in IE7, then you could just delete them in the "C:\Users\(user-name)\Favorites" folder, then use the tutorial below to import your bookmarks from Firefox into IE7.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Ok Brink, do you mean to actually delete the whole favorites folder, not the contents IN the folder? See my screenshot, the one highlighted in blue. Then just reimport them as if i had a new PC and have never done it before? (sorry I so tupid ) Thanks!!

Sorry, yes only the contents in your "Favorites" folder, and not the folder itself.
