Imported favourites in chrome

I currently have access to my old favourites in Internet Explorer. I do not want to lose them. I have not found a way to install these in chrome independently of IE. But particularly I want to switch off IE and I know how to do this . But will I lose the imported favourites if I do. any help appreciated.

THRASHZONE RE - IMPORTED favourites from IE into Google. Thanks very much for response. I want to switch off IE because I use my laptop very little and I have the problem of installing loads of updates that use up my data allowance. Also this IE is very slow to use. I use now mainly google on my IPAD and on the laptop when I go there. Now I have imported satisfactorily my favourites into Google but I simply do not want to lose them. So what I wanted to ask is - will they be retained in Google if I switch off IE and of course in future install just the Windows7 updates. Or are they dependent on the IE supplying them? I also remember thinking that whilst on a page imported from IE to try to Bookmark it in Google as an entity independent of IE but it did not seem to do that on the occasion that I tried!

Hi,
You shouldn't loose them in Chrome but you can export them from either browser as a htlm file,
Look at Option 2,

You can do the same in Chrome too,

Data restrictions is a issue,
But Chrome updates too and on a daily basis how large of an update ? it does this silently so it's hard to measure :/

If necessary use a friends home wifi to run windows updates ?

THRASHZONE imported Favourites

Thanks again!. I think exporting this to file is a good idea.Actually doing IE Updates from wifi indeed at the local library is an idea -after all you only need to download and then Install at home. But I only tend to use IE when I am in the Public Library. Having chrome and IOS Safari I find I don't need IE anymore.

Your welcome
Windows updates are allot easier to control than Chrome's updates but it's all personal preferences,
Just don't neglect windows updates too long ie on or off
Cheers.
