Backup Internet Favorites or Bookmarks


Hi Dilton Drey,

Well, it is pretty explainable why it you need to backup your bookmarks or your favorites. Sometimes you are bookmarking or adding to your favorites some very important web sites; thus, to avoid from losing a list of these important web sites we tend to back-up our bookmarks or our favorites. Well, you better keep it safe than sorry. Anyway, you did not post the web browser you are using so I will just post the specific instructions to these popular web browsers

Internet Explorer:

1. In your Internet Explorer web browser, click file menu.

2. Click Import and Export.

3. Follow the instructions, and choose the options as you please.

4. In the final window, you are prompted if you want to save it to a file or export the bookmark to an external application, choose the option, and enter the file directory where you want to save it. Once done, click the finish button.


1. Click File menu

2. Click Export Bookmarks


1. Click Bookmarks Menu -> Organize Bookmarks

2. When another window appears, click import and backup. > Export HTML

Backup Internet Favorites or Bookmarks


Backing up your favorite sites or simply your bookmarks will help you easily save time visiting the sites again or remembering the websites you visited in case something bad happens to your web browser and you need to uninstall it. I also use bookmark in my web browser because it helps me instantly access the site or sites I frequently visit and the ones I need to visit in the future which I don’t visit more often. I use this especially for my download needs.

Backing up the bookmark of the web browser is pretty much easy. Depending on the web browser you are using, try adapting this procedure on your web browser. Here’s how it is done in Maxthon Cloud browser:

  • Open Maxthon Cloud browser.
  • Click on the Favorites button on the sidebar on the left of the screen.
  • Click on the button next to Add to display more commands then select “Import/Export”.
  • In Import/Export User Data dialog box, select Export Favorites.
  • Select Export your favorites to selected folder then browse for the folder where you want to save it then click OK.
  • Click Done to close.
