This script will allow users to carry favourites in a folder in there home directory. So if you don’t use roaming profiles users will retain there favourites. You may need to change the drive letter of the home drive, in our case the home drive is “H:”

If Not fso.FolderExists("T:\Favorites") Then

  call noFavorites

End If

sub noFavorites filesys.CreateFolder "H:\Favorites" END sub
