January 29, 2010, Newsletter Issue #238: Can I move My Internet Explorer Favorites from My Computer to My Smartphone or PDA?

Tip of the Week


If you just bought a new Smartphone, you can easily move your favorites list from your computer to your Smartphone using Internet Explorer. You will need ActiveSync software to make the transfer.

Connect your PDA phone to the computer via USB cable, and choose the “Explore” option from the ActiveSync menu. Double click on “My Smartphone”, and “Storage”, “Windows”, and “Favorites”. This will show you the current items already saved in the Internet Explorer favorites list on your Smartphone.


Open the Windows file explorer on your PC and go to your favorites folder. Hold down the Ctrl key, and select the entries that you want to move to your Smartphone. Drag these items into the ActiveSync favorites folder. Now when you launch Internet Explorer on your Windows Mobile Smartphone, your favorites will be waiting.
