google earth new computer

Ok i actually bought a new computer before the old girl cashed.... so iam moving some of files over to new computer.. I need to move all my google earth "saved" places... anybody know a quick easy way to do this??

I have figured out i can hightlght the "location" use the save as function to save to thunb drive and transport to new computer,,,, this is a little slow as i have many places and trails to move.. I actually just want to get them to the thumb drive and not install them on the new computer ..When i want access the loction i will plug in the thumb drive and select from the file tree..

thanks fellow gps geeks

In GE in the "Places" pane, Right-Click on the top item "My Places" and select "Save Place As...". Direct this to your thumb drive. This will take ALL your stuff in one swoop! It doesn't matter if you save as KML or KMZ. With the thumb drive in your new computer, drag that file into the big GE display window. This will transfer all your stuff into GE on the new computer. You may want to slightly resort things once they show up in the Places pane. They can't stay in "Temporary Places". Now, next time you open GE on the new computer, your stuff will be there.

THanks that works.... but i wanted to leave it on the thumb drive and access individual file as needed... I read where a bunch of files om your ge makes it run slow.... and i have a buch,,,like 200...andwiththis method i cant access the individual file on the thumb.............

I had that happen with GE, "My Places" crammed resulted in GE starting very slowly. Moved "My Places" to another folder, problem solved.

When you say "moved my places to another folder" do mean another folder on your computer or another fold with GE?

I have probably the equivalent of 100,000 or more points (path points and waypoints) in my GE file. When I save it all (the WHOLE My Places file) in KMZ format, the file is 30 megabytes! With that, it used to take a half hour for GE to open. Then I did something like saved the whole thing, deleted it from within GE, exited GE, restarted GE, and reloaded the original file back into GE. Ever since then, my GE starts in about 30 seconds, even with a 30 meg MyPlaces file. So, there's something strange that happens that makes it load super slow when it gets big, but it can be fixed. I'm not 100% sure that what I described above is what fixed it, but when I was messing around like that, it suddenly worked FAR faster.

Another folder on the computer. I called it "My Google Earth", to go along with the theme of "My Garmin" "My Pictures" etc
