Export Bookmarks in Firefox

It's a good idea to export your bookmarks (Favorites) from time to time so that you can import them later in case you change your browser or reinstall Windows.

Exporting your bookmarks is actually quite easy and this tutorial will have you exporting and saving your bookmarks for later retrieval in less than five minutes.

First, open Firefox, of course. Next, click the Bookmarks button in the Menu Bar at the top, then select Organise Bookmarks (It may be spelt "Organize" if you've installed Firefox with the default US English):

The Library window will open. Select "Import and Backup":

Select "Export HTML":

This is important because it saves your bookmarks in a format that can be used by another browser in case you decide to switch browsers.

When you click on "Export HTML", the familiar Save window will open:

Navigate to a drive other than C: if you have one and click Save. You can change the name of the file if you wish but leave the file type as HTML.

There, you're done!

Your bookmarks have been saved as an HTML file that can be imported into Firefox in case you reinstall Windows or if you switch to a different browser. The next tutorial will tackle importing an HTML bookmarks file into Firefox.

Convert VCD to MPG

This is so easy, I can't believe it's true. If you have any trouble converting with the method I suggest below, PLEASE comment and let me know that it doesn't work.

So someone gives you a VCD and you want to save the movie to your hard disk. Here's how you do it:
  1. Using Windows Explorer, navigate to the MPEGAV folder on the VCD
  2. In that folder, you will find from one to several files that are named AVSEQ01 to 0 whatever, with the extension ".dat"
  3. Copy and paste all those files into a folder on your hard disk
  4. Using Windows Explorer, navigate to that folder, select the first file and hit F2, the function key
  5. Change the .dat extension to .mpeg
  6. Repeat for every .dat file you copied from the MPEGAV folder.

The files work perfectly in Windows Media Player and most film editors.

Reset your Yamaha keyboard

If you bought a Yamaha (musical) keyboard and messed with it so it doesn't do what it's been doing from the start (mine stopped playing the one-key chords), here's how to reset it to the factory default:

  • Switch it off
  • Keep the rightmost white key (the highest C) depressed
  • Switch it on again, holding the C depressed for about ten seconds.
Your keyboard will revert to factory settings. Works for most Yamaha keyboards.

Don't do this if you've saved songs, settings, etc. This technique is purely to return your Yamaha keyboard to the state it was in when you bought it.
