    I am having a new computer delivered this week & one of many problems will be moving all my favs to the new PC. Is there an easy way to do this? They are stored in each of IE, firefox & Chrome, the old pc is windows 7 the new one is of course windows 10.

    Thanks

    I regularly backup all my FF bookmarks.
    FF: click on Bookmarks then Show all Bookmarks. Select Import and Backup. Export Backups to HTML.

    When you are on a different computer, click on Bookmarks, show all bookmarks, select Import and Backup but this time choose Import Backups from HTML.

    The Internet Explorer favorites are stored in your computer account in the same areas as Documents, Pictures, etc. It's a folder called Favorites. Copy that folder to the same place in your new computer. You can replace the folder that W10 will have created when you set up the machine.

    For Chrome, you're going to have to Export from the old computer and Import into the new computer.
