You can recreate all the links on this page by clicking the import button.
Importing will first remove all the links currently on the page, so please make sure all links on this page that you want to keep already exist in your Internet Explorer favorites. If not, please click the export button first.
When importing, the order of items will be preserved if possible. The order of links within a folder will be preserved if the folder name stays the same.
Click the export button to add every link on this page to your Internet Explorer favorites.
Links that already exist in your Internet Explorer favorites will be overwritten only if you have checked the overwrite checkbox under settings.
Any structure of folders and subfolders will be preserved during importing and exporting.
You can move or delete links and rearrange boxes on this page using drag-and-drop.
Here is an example: To delete a link, move the mouse pointer over the link and click the left mouse button. Move the mouse while holding left mouse button down. The Recycle Box will appear. Move the mouse pointer over it and let go of the mouse button. The link is now marked for deletion. The undo button will appear. You can click it to move the link back to its original position. Links in the Recycle Box will be deleted from both this page and your Internet Explorer favorites when you click the save button.
Clicking save will first apply all changes you have made and then import your Internet Explorer favorites. This will replace all the links on this page, ensuring that this page is synchronized with your Internet Explorer favorites.
To rename items or move subfolders, you can use the Organize Favorites feature on the Favorites menu in Internet Explorer. Afterwards, click the import button to update this page.
