I bought a new computer and changed ISP's. I have all my favorites saved to a floppy from aol but need to get them, even to print them out, so that I can input them into IE. It is a PFC file which windows does not recognize. Isn't AOL great. Hope someone can help.

I know of one service and one program that will do what you want. Neither are free, sorry to say.

Conversion service

Conversion software

America Online (AOL) offers users the option to store incoming/read and sent E-mail in the AOL Personal Filing Cabinet (.PFC). Generally, this file is only viewable using AOL software. There are commercial sites that will, for a fee, convert the material to Outlook (and other) formats.

PFCEx is a free program that will extract URLs from PFC files and write them to an HTML file which can then be viewed or edited with a text editor for import into other formats.

That sounds good. Better than shareware or paid. Once it is converted to html you could right lick and "Save as Bookmark.." or add to favorites.
