If you need to move your bookmarks, here's how:
- Internet Explorer. Choose FileImport and Export to start the Import/Export Wizard. Click Next to kick it off and on the next screen, click Export Favorites from the list. Click Next again and choose the Favorites folder or subfolder you want to copy. Click Next, save the HTML file to the desktop, and click Next one last time to finish the job. Copy the HTML file (probably called bookmark.htm) to the netbook. If you're using Internet Explorer on the netbook, too, choose FileImport and Export to start the Import/Export Wizard again, but select Import Favorites instead of Export and point the wizard to the HTML file you just copied to the netbook. If you're bringing them into Firefox, choose BookmarksOrganize BookmarksImport and BackupImport HTML and pullin the file.
- Firefox. Choose Book-marksOrganize BookmarksImport and BackupExport HTML. Pick where you want to save the bookmarks.htm file and click the Save button. Copy the file from the saved location and transfer it to the netbook. If you're using Internet Explorer on the netbook, choose FileImport and Export to start the Import/Export Wizard again and select Import Favorites. Point the wizard to the HTML file you just copied to the netbook. If you're bringing them into Firefox, choose BookmarksOrganize BookmarksImport and BackupImport HTML and pull in the file.
Tip: If you have more bookmarks than the Library of Congress gift shop and add more every day, a program that automatically synchronizes your bookmarks across all your browsers might be in order. Free programs like SyncIT for Windows (www.sync2it.com) can help, as can some Firefox utilities mentioned in the next section.
