OK. I am not sure I was clear enough with my first inquiry. I am not
copying a specific web site, but an entire folder of them. Smile.

[2 <text/html; us-ascii (quoted-printable)>] Hello David,

I like your idea below. I have been using both Firefox and Internet
Explorer. I recently installed Chrome. I placed on my desktop a link to
the Internet Explorer Favorites list folder. So now I can use this same
list for both of the browsers. However when I tried to use this with
Chrome, it did not work. I got garbage for web results. Do I need to
change the Favorites file format for Chrome? Is there a specific method I
must use to access the desktop folder?
Some other ideas?

I am using a Windows 7 computer.

There is a nice and easy way to deal with bookmarks in Chrome,
favorites in IE, etc. Personally,

I think that accessing and managing bookmarks in Chrome in Firefox is
very clunky. By

contrast, it is extremely easy to access and manage favorites in IE.

If you create a desktop shortcut for your favorites folder, you can
open the favorites in whatever

browser you have chosen as your default. I have Chrome as my default
browser, maintain all my

favorites in IE, and open them from the desktop with Chrome. I make no
effort to maintain

bookmarks in Chrome or Firefox, And in Windows 10, it is very easy to
change your default

browser via the Control Panel.
