Moving favourites when you switch

Question : How do I transfer my Internet Explorer Favourites from my old PC to the web browser on the new Mac?

Answer : One quick way to move your Favourites, or browser bookmarks, to a new computer is to start Internet Explorer, go to the File menu and select "Import and Export."

When the Import/Export wizard starts up, choose "Export Favourites" from the list of actions and click on the Next button.

Once you select your Favourites file, you can export it to the desktop or a folder on your PC. From there, you can copy the exported Favourites file onto an external drive or recordable compact disc, copy it to your new Mac over a network connection or send the file to yourself as an e-mail attachment from the old computer to the new one.

Once you get the file on your Mac, you can add the Favourites to the Mac OS X Safari web browser. Start the Safari program, go to the File menu and choose Import Bookmarks.

Navigate to the folder or place on the Mac where you have stored your exported Favourites file and click on the Import button to pull in the bookmarks.

A section of Apple's website, www.apple.com/macosx/switch, is devoted to moving all kinds of files to a Macintosh.
