Specs: Windows 10 Home, Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-860 quad-core processor, 6GB DDR3-1333MHz SDRAM
Is it possible to edit the Favorites file (Windows 10, Internet Explorer) using Microsoft Word and, if so, what would be the procedure?

Thanks

You can manually edit the names any of the individual Favorites files for IE, make sub folders and move them around if you so wish, I've done so at odd times. It is here:
"C:\Users\<your name>\Favorites"

By the way I've found that IE is rubbish these days - many websites open slowly or badly. Consider Edge or Firefox which are both kept properly up to date.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

What do wish to edit, as in what is it you wish to change?

I have a large Favorites file. Using the 'Organize Favorites' function provided by Internet Explorer takes too long to make changes to the file. I want to create new subfolders, move groups of favorites to the new subfolders, delete favorites, folder and subfolders, make searches of favorites.... All this would be much quicker in my opinion using a word processor.
Thanks

I'm not using IE (currently on Mac systems), but presumably this is the approach you know about already?

This (an olde post) discusses exporting favourites/bookmarks) from Mozzilla/Firefox and opening them in Word... Possibly you can use the same approach for IE?

Essentially export as html, and open the file in Word...

Thanks to both trvlr and Derek. Both editing methods suggested seem to be working fine.

As far as the comments of Derek on IE, I am using also other browsers and I agree that some websites cannot be used in IE.
