    Favorites

    I do not know where to find my favorites folder (bookmarks) on my Mac. I have some links I saved from my old computer and want to move them into the same folder as the one with the ones I added manually.

    What browsers are you transferring from/to? Firefox on your PC to Safari on your Mac? If so:

    Just open Firefox and expand the bookmarks window. Through 'file', click on export. Save the resultant file wherever and either AIM/email/data transfer it to your Mac. Now that the file is on your mac, just open Safari, click 'file', and pick 'import'; import the file you exported from Firefox.

    For future reference, the file that possesses your Safari bookmarks is in Home > Library > Safari. It's called Bookmarks.plist.

    Which version of OSX are you using?



    edit: you don't need to find your Safari folder to transfer your bookmarks. Just use the steps I listed above.

    they should be under libraries, under the root user menu (users, <username>, libraries, safari, bookmarks) or something like that.

    Okay.

    Found my library. But, deleted all my favorites by accident.

    How can I alphabetically arrange the bookmarks I have now? I don't seem to be able to.

    Alas, there is no simple method of sorting bookmarks alphabetically in Safari- which is a pretty ridiculous shortcoming. It can be rectified, though, with a.) third party software or b.) a workaround I recently figured out:

    Open Safari's bookmark area > find the bookmark subfolder/entire folder you want to alphabetize > drag onto desktop > open Finder, and open your dragged bookmark folder > set to list view > drag the 'list'ed' folder back into your Safari bookmarks.

    Then delete the original unsorted folders.
