    I have "Favorites" saved in documents that I cannot get to "Bookmarks" in the Browser. These I have downloaded from PC to a flashdrive then moved to documents in Mac. All the files will open in documents. I have tried the "Import" function, all the files are not highlighted and will not move. I have tried dragging them, no luck. Any suggestions ?

    I'm sure you've googled "safari import bookmarks" and found no help in the guides.

    Assuming you have all these bookmarks in the "old windows" -format, as in one file per bookmark, you might try two things:
    - firefox may be more flexible in importing bookmarks. If you succeed there, Safari can then import them from firefox
    - if you still have access to that PC, power it up (I know it hurts) and do a real export bookmarks (that will create an HTML -file), which you can then import into Safari.

    If neither of these help, post back, and be more specific.
