Windows – Where is the favourites folder in Windows 7

favoriteswindows 7

I wanted to copy my favourites links from another machine onto a newly installed Windows 7 machine, but the system won't let me paste them into the Favourites folder showing at the top of Windows Explorer.

I can't see the old \Documents and Settings\User\Favourites on the C:\ drive any more, so where are they stored now?

Best Answer

The Documents and Settings folder simply changed name to Users in Vista and Windows 7.

%USERPROFILE%\Favorites

will work on all versions.
