Bookmarks/favorite backup and restoration

Bookmarks/favorite backup and restoration

Day before yesterday one of my office mate asked me how he could take backup of his Firefox and Internet Explorer bookmarks, After that I realised its not a very well known way to take backup even its very simple so I decide to make this post for Firefox and I explorer bookmark Backup.

For bookmark backup we have two way to take backup

1) Offline Backup (take all backup in your backup as you do other backup)

2) Online Backup (upload bookmarks on some bookmark site)

I personally recommend both the method because one is simple and easy and other one is simple easy plus accessible from any part of the world. Very useful when you do not have access of your computer, and you need your bookmarks to do some task urgently.

Offline Backup :->

Internet Explorer:->


* From the File menu, select Import and Export.

* Click next and select Export Favourites.

* Save this file to your computer as bookmarkbackup.html.

This will be an HTML File now if you have to take restore your bookmark in some other computer just import this file in Internet explorer instead of export.


* From the File menu, select Import and Export.

* Click next and select Import Favourites.

* Browse to your bookmarkbackup.html file and next. Its done.

For Firefox


* From the bookmark menu, select organize bookmark or press ctrl+shift+B.

* you will get Library window here click on import and backup and select exporthtml.

* Save this html file and it’s done.

Restore bookmark in Firefox.

* From the bookmark menu, select organize bookmark or press ctrl+shift+B.

* You will get Library window here click on import and backup and select Import html.

* It’s done.

Online backup :->

For online backup you need to decide an online bookmark provider I recommend yahoo bookmarks.

1) Go to login here with your account.

2) Click on tools (top corner).

3) Click in Import bookmark

4) Select bookmark file click on browse and give the html file path that you backed up.

5) Click on import button.

Once this import is done you are done with your backup. You can see these bookmarks anywhere in the world.

For restore this bookmark

Yahoo bookmark ->tools->export bookmarks->bookmark type and click on export.

For restoring in browser choose restore bookmark

Five tips for Computer faster performance

Five tips to Computer faster performance

Many time people ask me how they can improve the speed of their home computer stating that it’s Celeron 1 GHz so they can work. Practically speaking it’s not possible! But I don’t let them down with this answer I give them some tips that could allow them to work with better speed than usual. In my today’s blog post those tips are here

1)Remove unnecessary item in startup : one of the very-very important point get faster performance is that do not keep any software in your start-up that you don’t use from start of your computer to shutdown of your computer. You can remove unwanted start-up program from run->msconfig->startup. Now remove the entire unwanted program from here. So it would not consume your system ram.

2)Minimise window instead of Alt+tab:If you need to see the other window of Firefox from winword or from one program to another program I would recommend to minimise the leaving program window instead of using cnatrol+tab. Now Question is why and the answer is when you move from one window to another window without minimising it,it would consume the same amount of the ram that when it was consuming when it was being used by you, but if you minimise the window then computer feels its not being used by you anymore and it don’t need more resource to run in front.

3)Remove temp files: one very important part of the keeping your system performance healthy is keep deleting temporary files of your computer. For deleting temporary file I am not going to recommend any tool just follow the simple steps.
a.Start->run->%temp% and press enter
b.Delete all the files from this folder and that’s done.
c.If it says to you this file cannot be deleted than skip that file and delete other for avoiding this message you can do this temp folder cleaning task just after restart so it would not give you any error of file usage.

4)Keep your system root drive (generally C) drive free as much as possible. Basically it’s recommended to keep the space 4 times than your RAM because it will have the space to create system file in your system.

5)Use disk Defragment time to time so it can arrange your computer’s hard disk data in a order and it need less time to read the data from hard disk. A must do task for slow hard disk computers.

How to remove program from startup and what is Disk defragmentation and how to do it!

Change Default Remote Desktop (RDP) hearing port for server

Change Default Remote Desktop (RDP) hearing port for server

After this heading you must be thinking why the hell I need to change my default port for my Remote Desktop connection. Answer is simple if you have to share remote desktop of multiple computer of your local network to real world internet you have two option

1) Give client a VPN connection make them a part of your network and then let them access your machine remotely.

2) Configure your router/modem to forward a port for a particular IP in your local network so only that computer will be accessible to external world.

It’s easily understood that First option is tough as well as not good for security while second option is much easier and more secured too. Limitation with second option of port forwarding is that you can configure only one computer accessible at one time so change the ports for RDP hearing port and share as many as you want.

For changing default port of RDP we need to do a change in Registry so I would recommend you to continue if you are little bit familiar with Registry

1. Start Registry Editor. Start->run->regedit and press enter/

2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:


3. On the Edit menu, click Modify, and then click Decimal.

4. Type the new port number, and then click OK.

5. Quit Registry Editor.

For connecting to remote desktop connection you should give port along with IP or server name of the client connection.

For allow this connection to real world you need to do a port forwarding at your modem/router. For port forwarding setting you would need to check with your modem/router provider what you need to do.

I apologise for being help less at this moment due to not helping for port forward for you router.

If you face any problem in port forwarding please do a comment with router/modem name with modem number I will try to help you for the same.
