How To Email Your Favorites To Others In Internet Explorer

Thursday, August 26th, 2010 by | Filed Under: E-Mail Help, File & Disk Management, Using The Internet

You’ve just found out that your buddy has discovered digital photography, the same hobby you’re passionate about. You have amassed a large collection of websites and would like to share the links. Here’s an easy way to email your Favorites files.

From the File menu, select Import and Export.

The Import/Export Settings dialog box will ask, How do you want to export or import your browser settings?

Select Export to a file. Click Next.

Next, you’ll be asked, What would you like to export? Choose Favorites. Click Next.

You will be instructed to Select the folder that you want to export your favorites from.

Click Next.

The next prompt will ask, Where do you want to export your favorites? Type in or browse to find a location. I placed my file on the Desktop, but you can place it anywhere you wish.

Click Export. Click Finish.

Now you’ve created a file of your favorites. Compose an email and attach the file to your email before sending it.

Once the recipient gets the email and clicks on the attachment, they may be asked to Choose the program you want to use to open this file. They should select their browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.), or it may just open automatically in their browser.

Voila! Your friend will have access to all your favorites. Happy sharing!

    Good tip, I’ve been looking to consolidate my favorites between all my PC’s
    for awhile now. Once I’ve created a ‘master list’ of all favorites on every
    computer, I can then use it when I build another to start it out with every
    one I need and use for downloading software, accessing websites, etc. This
    will reduce the time needed to install routine programs, while giving me a
    ready to use list of favorite websites.
    Any particular computer that I doesn’t need a link in favorites is deleted
    to clean up the favorites on any particular machine. An example would be my
    Office 2000 links on a computer with Office 2007 installed.
