that's what I do.. go to the favorites folder, ctl A, and copy.. paste it to your word or whatever.. usually comes up links.. then you just ctl and click that link from your document.. I haven't figured out how to copy the actual internet webpage info from all at once..

If in MSIE (Microsoft Internet Explorer) you just click File and from the drop down options choose Import and Export. Select Export to a File. Click Next and in the next window choose (check) Favorites. In the next window Fovorites chould be hilighted at the top of the page. Browse to where you want to export the file to and that is about it. The only bummer is if you ever want to reimport the file they will import back but in alphabetical order which may not be how you have them set up.
