Copy Windows Explorer Favorites from Old Computer to New Computer

This was pretty easy.
I copied the favorites on the old computer to the shared file folder on the old computer.
Then on the new computer I opened windows explorer and went to C then Users then copied the file from another Windows Explorer window open to network old computer name folder.

I then copied and pasted the favorites file from the shared folder to the user/username folder.  Windows asked me if I wanted to merge the files and I said yes.

It worked and all the old favorites are now in the new computer.

    This is not how to copy Windows Explorer favorites. This is for Internet Explorer favorites. BIG difference. Wish you’d change your title.
