cookies: save/restore possible ?!?

Post by Tanja Wend » Wed, 31 Aug 2005 00:13:05


does anyone know a free- or shareware to comfortably exchange

Several Users use the same pc and IE (but not different windowas
accounts) to access a internet site which uses cookies. Before a user
starts to surf he or she would like to easily (one mouse click e.g.)
restore his or her cookies.

Manually copying cookies doesn't seem to work. The software "Smart
Protector" allows to save the state of IE and restore it again later:
not flexible enough, but at least it shows that cookie-switching
should be possible.

So is there a software around which allows to easily save and restore
cookies just like word documents? :)

Thanks in advance for any help!!

IE can "export" the cookies into a txt file. Then, you take that to another
computer, and "import" them - works great, just as the export/import of

From Internet Explorer, go to File / Import and Export - from there follow
the wizard.

Hope this is what you were looking for.

Why not to use a real browser (Firefox, Mozilla, Opera, etc.) and set
up different profiles for different users? Get rid of the IE thing.
