Transfer browser favorites (IE and Firefox)

If you're an Internet Explorer user, the Favorites folder is in a different spot, depending on whether you use XP or Vista. In XP, go to C:\Documents and Settings\your username\Favorites. If Vista, then C:\Users\your username\Favorites. Take that whole folder from your old computer, then put it in the necessary location on the new computer. Make sure you use the locations listed depending on what operating system each of the computers are using.

If you use Firefox, go to Bookmarks, then Organize Bookmarks. You should see an option for "Import and Backup" here, which you can then use to backup your bookmarks to a file, then move that file to the new computer and repeat the process but import rather than backup
