    Resolved [RESOLVED] Populate Text File With IE Favorites!

    I did like to populate a text file with all the IE Favorites that exist in the Favorites folder as internet shortcuts. Each line in the text file should have 2 parts - the first part should be the title of the internet shortcuts & the second part should be the URL of the internet shortcuts. The 2 parts should be comma-delimited. For e.g. if I have added the home pages of Yahoo, Google, MSN, BBC & CNN to my Favorites list (the Favorites folder has 5 internet shortcuts), the text file should be populated with

    Code:
    "Yahoo","http://www.yahoo.com"
    "Google","http://www.google.com"
    "MSN","http://www.msn.com"
    "BBC","http://www.bbc.com"
    "CNN","http://www.cnn.com"
    How do I accomplish this?

    I am very much aware of that, my dear friend. The problem is in extracting the title & the URL of the Favorites internet shortcuts. How do I do that?
