    How can i change the location of the favorites folder ?

    I have 2 windows installations on my computer and i
    want a common place where the favorites are stored
    like c:\Favorites\

    I have tried to change this:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders\Favorites

    But when i start IE it resets the folder location...

    Anyone ?

    The easiest way to move the Favourites folder.... Just MOVE it... like you would any normal folder... windows detects this and changes the registry entries automatically. ;)

    Just rename it / overwrite the other favourites folder with it.
