Copy the Favorites folder to a disk/CD, then copy it from the disk/CD to
your new computer. Shortcuts to Web sites will be okay; shortcuts to files
will not work unless the path is exactly the same.

Select the folder and either:

1. Right-click and choose Copy, then select the drive you want to copy to,
right-click, and choose Paste; or

2. Drag the folder to the drive you want to copy to (Windows automatically
copies rather than moves when you drag files between drives).

Alright Suzanne...please excuse my stupidity. I have 26 folders in my
"Favorites" option. In those folders are various links to different
websites. Instead of copying/pasting each folder to a drive how can I do all
this at once?

Okay...As I'm right-clicking on the Favorites folder the only options I'm
getting is "Standard Buttons", "Address Bar", "Links", "Lock the Toolbars",
and "Customize." There is no "Copy" option.

Where are you clicking on the Favorites folder? You should be doing this in
Windows Explorer. Alternatively, you can just drag the folder to a removable
drive. And note that Ctrl+C works there, too.
