Backing up files on your computer is critically important. You might also have saved a lot of bookmarks in your internet browser that you don't want to lose. Here's how to save those bookmarks and import them into your browser. Exporting Your Bookmarks to a file
Open Internet Explorer.
Make sure the Menu bar is visible by right-clicking explorer's toolbar and verifying that "Menu bar" has a check beside it.
Under the File menu, select Import and Export
Select Export to a file, then click Next.
Check the boxes you want to export. Favorites are your bookmarks.
Choose the Favorites Folder and click Next
Select location and file name for your export. The default location is your Documents folder. Then click Export.
After exporting your favorites to a file, you can save the file and import it at any time. The following instructions will show you how to import these settings from the exported file.
Importing Your Bookmarks from a file
Repeat steps 1-3 from the above guide.
Select Import from a file and click Next.
Click Browse and find the file you exported in the previous step, then click Next. By default, the wizard will look for this file in the Documents folder.

Can I override the web filtering system?
When you are logged in to a computer with your Active Directory account, you will automatically override the filter and be given access to sites that are categorized and allowed by the filter (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.).
when you try to access a web page that is not categorized by the proxy filter, you will see a web filter page (see example below). This is a warning page for sites that are not categorized by the proxy filter. This does NOT mean that this site is blocked by the filter.
At the bottom of this page, you will see a Proceed button.
Click the Proceed button. You will see a momentary message that the filter is analyzing the site. Then you will see the Proceed button again. Click Proceed again.
If this is a site that you use often, you can submit a request for it to be allowed (whitelisted) by emailing the web address (URL) to email@example.com or submitting a work order. The Networking department will review the site and make a decision whether to allow it to be whitelisted or not. If you are unsure of the work order process follow this guide.
The override is for staff use ONLY. Students should NEVER use a staff account to log in or override the filter. All internet activity is logged and stored indefinitely You are responsible for all activity logged under your account.
Remember: Always include your name, location (campus/building and room), make and model of equipment, Service tag and/or Barcode, specific, detailed description of the problem you are experiencing. Without this information, there may be a delay in getting to your request.
