IE Address Links


I was wondering how to "extract" the address links from the address bar? If you get my :)

So just in case i will show it here,: Addresslist.

If anyone got some idears please feel free to write :D And i mean this is possible, think i have done it once before, i just can't remember!

RE: IE Address Links

Do you mean you want to do this programmatically, for example, with JavaScript? Or do you simply want to back up your history?

If the former, I doubt this could easily be done cross-browser due to massive security issues (think about it for a minute).

If the latter, this would depend on the browser in question.

RE: IE Address Links

The thing is that i need if possible the same address linkes moved to another computer, so i mean that they should be stored somewere on my computer like Favorites can be moved easy i think i have moved the address linkes to once, but i just can't remember it! Maybe there are stored in a catch file?  

RE: IE Address Links

Have a peek in the registry at:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs

RE: IE Address Links

Hey Smah,

I did find the location you wrote, and it works in some part. But i got many more sites on the computer if i export the reg file, i only get the ones that stand in the reg, and thats only 25 out of maybe 100+ but are then not stored somewhere on the computer, like temp files fx?

RE: IE Address Links

Since IE6 doesn't use 'suggestions' for the address bar autocomplete, all the remaining addresses are assembled from IE's history.  You'll need a third party utility to get at them easily.  Something like this should collect most of them http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/iehv.html

RE: IE Address Links

Smah okay i will try that program, but i just thought there were an easier way, without using any third party utility. :)
