How to Move My Favorites to a Network Drive

Save

The Favorites folder in Windows is used to store the bookmarks and related suggested sites for the Internet Explorer Web browser. The folder is located in your Windows Personal folder. The folder has the same characteristics as the other folders on the system, including the ability to be moved, copied or transferred. If you want to move the folder to a network drive, drag the folder to the drive just like any other folder on the system. However, on Windows, dragging the Favorites folder to a network drive will create a copy instead of directly moving it.

Open Network Drive Window

  • Right-click "Start," and select "Open Windows Explorer."

  • Click "Network" in the left side of the Windows Explorer window.

  • Double-click the network drive in the list of network devices. The new window displays the contents of the network drive.

Move the Favorites Folder

  • Click "Start" and then select your Personal folder at the top-right corner of the Start menu. The personal folder has the name of your Windows user account. Your Personal folder window opens.

  • Click the title bar of the Personal folder window and drag it to the right-side of the screen until an outline appears. Release the mouse button. The window expands to cover the right-side of the desktop.

  • Click the title bar of the network drive window and drag it to the left-side of the screen until an outline appears. Release the mouse button. The window expands to cover the left-side of the desktop.

  • Click the "Favorites" folder in the Personal folder window, and then drag it to the network drive window and release it. A small window appears showing the transfer process. When it completes, a copy of your Favorites folder appears on the network drive.
