    Unfortunately there's no option to import favorites/bookmarks after the fact. I even tried to associate .url with spartan.exe but it didn't work out.

    I'm assuming the 'greyed' out book symbol is the Bookmarks Symbol which is maybe why I can't get my bookmarks, but can't see any way to activate this.

    Favorites is set to on which I assume is just another name for Bookmarks - that being so, I'm kinda lost as to what to do next!

    The 'book' symbol is 'Reader Mode' for certain pages.

    I think that may be for "reading list", read what ?, don't get that one. Maybe for tablets, something to read while waiting for MS to make a good browser.
    Anywho, the only way I can think of is to open a bookmark in IE, copy address in Spartan and than save bookmark.

    It transforms certain pages into 'Reading Mode'.

    Yep.. So far, not very impressed with Spartan. The ability to import/export favorites is kind of a no brainer imo.

    Me neither. If I do want to save a page, I can either use OneNote or in IE Gear icon>File>save as then it saves to documents for later viewing(something IE has always done). And Chrome has Save Page As in it's menu. I think this gadget is more for Tablets and phones.

The latest build 10049 has an early version of Spartan. I found it strange that when I enable the favorites bar, it shows what I had on my chrome install, not IE. The favorites bar is also cutoff. I think I was confused on the chrome thing:o 15731
