Moving Internet Explorer Favorites to the Network
I’ve been using this little trick ever since my early XP days and still using it with Windows 7, and was surprised that this wasn’t a more common tip/trick
This registry hack moves your IE Favorites off to the network (your home drive) and allows you to have your favorites follow you no matter which computer you are sitting at
The H:\ Drive is my network drive. Move your Favorites folder from your Profile and to the Network drive, then change the registry keys bellow.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders]
That’s it, any computer you log into, you must also edit the same keys to point to the network drive, but then again, you will never have to email yourself links. (I’ve never tried this using Dropbox, but I bet it would work)
Yeah this post is not going to win any awards for innovation, but hey, who knows, it might just help someone out.
