Way to export or save Google Earth pins?

Post by Daehawk » Wed Apr 24, 2019 9:06 pm

Ive lost Google Earth twice over the many years. But I have a lot marked now that I marked or found with my wife when she was alive. Places she remembered and Id search until I found them. Or places we went or family locations from her childhood. I'd REALLY hate to lose them again. All those pins Ive set with names and locations. With my wife passed on Id never find them all or remember why they are pinned now.

I see a IMPORT thing under FILES but that does me no good unless I can export the setting or pins or whole thing somehow to reload later if GE messes up or gets upgraded.

This came to me while looking for her aunt's house which I used to have marked and had to find again. She has been gone many years now. We went a few times. One was even Thanksgiving. Our little dog at the time loved to play on a large flat rock in the front yard we called Timmy's Rock. I see its still there.

Dont know will check into as I get the time..ty.

EDIT: Didn't help. Could not find that dir and so I searched for the file it names and it doesn't even exist on the entire drive.

Found. Had to do it all by hand...the built in windows search of the drive found nothing on its own..doh. ty

That's why you should use the vastly superior (and free) Everything utility for file searching instead.
"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." -- Daniel Webster
