AOL's Favorite Places stores the bookmarks you've saved from internet sites that you want to revisit frequently. Saving the links to your Favorite Places lets you recall them quickly. Export the Favorite Places list as a backup to make it available for use in a browser outside of AOL. Once exported from AOL, you can import the HTML file through the "Import" function of the "File" menu in your browser.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Open your Web browser. Type into the address field and press Enter.

    Click "Sign In," then type the username and password for your AOL screen name. Click "Sign In."

  4. 4

    Click "Bookmarks," then click "Export Bookmarks." Click "Save" in the "File Download" box. Open the folder that you want to save your bookmarks to, then click "Save."
