Ok, my father is enlisting my help but I have tried and can't figure out a way to do it. He's moving to a new school, and he doesn't want to leave any websites in his Favorites folder on his old school's computer. What he wants to do is save the favorites first and then delete them off of his computer? How does he go about doing that?

In Win XP, go to My computer, and open the c: drive>documents and settings>username folder . The favorites folder will be visible. Copy it to a floppy disk (right click on the icon, and choose send to..).

Then open the folder, and delete the contents .
Be wary of strong drink. It may make you shoot at tax collectors, and miss!
