How to Email a Bookmark List

By Tara Kimball

The "Favorites" or "Bookmarks" menu in your web browser is a great way to organize websites for quick future reference. If you want to send your bookmarks to someone or you want to email it to another computer you use, the process is quick and easy. With the export options available in the Internet browser, you can create a file of your bookmarks that can be easily attached to an email.

Step 2

Click “Export to a File” in the “Import/Export Settings” dialog box. Click the “Next” button. Click the check box beside “Favorites” to specify that you want to export your internet browser favorites and click the “Next” button.
