Transferring Start Page Favourites to New Computer

QV12 SR3

I'm assuming the answer is probably no but it can't hurt to ask...

Our IT dept here have presented me with a nice new shiny computer.  Is there anyway to transfer the favourites on the start page from my old computer to my new computer?

Just tried copying new files to the favourites list at the end of the .ini file and it seems to work.

...

[Favorites]

Example.qvw=U:\My Documents\Qlikview\Example.qvw

Test.qvw=U:\My Documents\Qlikview\Test.qvw

ExcelTest.qvw=U:\My Documents\Qlikview\ExcelTest.qvw

APIGuide.qvw=U:\My Documents\Qlikview\APIGuide.qvw

Categories.qvw=U:\My Documents\Qlikview\Categories.qvw

List.qvw=U:\My Documents\Qlikview\List.qvw

Queries.qvw=U:\My Documents\Qlikview\Queries.qvw

I would recommend backing up the .ini file just in case, but it could be a useful trick.

You can see the files set as favourites in the Settings.ini file at C:\Users\{user}\AppData\Roaming\QlikTech\QlikView.

Not sure if it's possible to copy them from one to another, though.
