Is there a way to copy a listing of "FAVORITES" from my browser on to a thumb drive and download it to my other computer?

Thanks!

Yes. I assume you're in IE, since you called them "Favorites". This is for IE6.

Go to "File" and "Import and Export". Select Next, then select "Export Favorites". Chose which favorites you want to export, then tell it what file you want to export to. Say, "Home Computer Favorites".

Save that file to your thumb drive or wherever, and take it to the new computer. Do the same thing, but instead of selecting "Export Favorites", select "Import Favorites".

IE7 changed the interface, so I'm not sure whether it works the same now.

Yes...I did this today infact...

Go to my computer...open it up,go to C drive and look for documents and settings.In that folder you will see admin and user (you)...open the fold most relevant to you and you should see the favorites folder indicated by a star...Open this folder and select all and right click to copy and then dump to your thumbdrive.
