How to copy the Internet Favorites from another computer
Published Date : 10 Oct 2006   Content Ref: TEC762235  





Symptoms

You wish to have the same Internet Favorites on each machine on an RM SchoolShare™ network.


Requirements

It is much easier to save the Favorites to a shared network drive. However, you can also save them to a floppy disk or a USB pen drive.

This procedure uses the copy and paste feature of the Microsoft® Windows® operating system.



Procedure

  1. Log on as Manager and set up the Internet Favorites as desired on one computer.
  2. Double-click on My Computer or open Windows® Explorer.
  3. Browse to the following location:
    C:\Windows (click on Show Files if necessary)
  4. Right-click on the Favorites folder and select Copy.
  5. Open My Computer again and browse to the location you wish to save the Favorites (this may be a network drive or a floppy disk).
  6. Right-click within this location and select Paste.
  7. Log on to the next machine as Manager.
  8. Insert the floppy disk if required and then browse to the location you have saved the Favorites to.
  9. Right-click on the Favorites folder and select Copy.
  10. Browse to C:\Windows.
  11. Right-click within this folder and select Paste.
  12. Select Yes to overwrite existing files when prompted.
    The Internet Favorites should now be available on that machine for each user desktop.
  13. Repeat steps 7-12 for each Windows® 98 machine on the network.
