Thanks for your reply to my question but this does not solve my problem.
If I click on the word "Favourites" at the top of my AOL account page I am given three options:
Add to Favourites
Add to Favourites Bar
and Organise Favourites
There is no selection button or heading entitled "Manage Favourites". "Organise Favourites" may be a new name for this but my existing Favourites are not listed there.
Since I have changed my computer to one using Windows 8 from the previous model using Windows Vista the appearance of the AOL Desktop has changed but my AOL screen names remain the same so there should be no reason why my existing Favourites stored by AOL and linked to those screen names should not still be accessible.
Previously, when I clicked on "Favourites" they were listed in a column on the right side of the screen and could, if I wished, be dragged on to a Favourites Bar at the top of the page or into an email that I happened to be writing at the time. This last feature was very useful and I cannot think that AOL has dropped this facility from its programme.
If you can help further I will be very grateful.
You have told me that I could possibly transfer my former list of AOL Favourites to my new Windows8 computer if I can connect it to my old Windows Vista computer and I have explained that I want to avoid doing this as my old computer has been infected by a hacker who gained remote access to it.
However, I have an idea. A few days before my old computer was atttacked I had a new hard disk fitted and I still have the old hard disk which is not infected and the data on this is retrievable
If you can tell me the procedure for transferring my old AOL Favourites file to the new computer I can ask the computer engineer at the shop where I bought my new computer to do this for me. There is just one very valuable file that I am looking for and I know the name of it.
Thanks for your mail.
I will be happy to rate your answer to my question so that you are paid when you have replied to my latest question about the procedure for transferring my AOL Favourites list to my new computer from my old hard disk, that is to say from my old computer, as your last suggestion did not work for the reason I stated.
You told me earlier that there is a procedure for transferring the list from my old computer if I connect the two but you did not say what is is. Please refer to my last email.
