    How do I export Favorites to CD-RW? Running Windows XP SP3 I can export to
    floppy but I want to buy a new computer and it does not have floppy drive

    Export them to the Desktop and then select that file to copy to CD.

    Exporting from IE generates an XML file (in a bookmarks.htm file). You
    could just copy your Favorites folder like you can copy any other folder.
    In fact, it probably is included in your backups. If you don't backup, you
    deem your data as worthless or reproducible.
