How to Import and Export RSS Feeds in Internet Explorer

information   Information
Feeds, also known as RSS feeds, XML feeds, syndicated content, or web feeds, contain frequently updated content published by a website. They are often used for news and blog websites, but are also used for distributing other types of digital content, including pictures, audio files, or video. Internet Explorer can discover and display feeds as you visit websites. You can also subscribe to feeds to automatically check for and download updates that you can view later. In addition, when you add a Web Slice to your Favorites bar, you automatically subscribe to its associated feed.

This will show you how to import or export your list of RSS feeds in Internet Explorer. You can use this exported list as a backup and to import to another computer or program. In addition, you can import a list of RSS feeds from another computer or program into your Internet Explorer list of RSS feeds.

Internet Explorer uses the standard OPML (Outline Processor Markup Language) file extension format, used by many RSS applications.
