How do I save my blocked cookies list and my accepted cookies lists?

Since we are always cleaning out our internet files, it is a MAJOR pain in the butt choosing all the cookies from websites manually all the time. I want to do this as I dont want most cookies on my computer, but I want to allow them from trusted sites I need to use cookies on. But I dont want to go through this every time. I should only have to go through it once. But when you clean out your cookies, it gets rid of all the ones you wanted and chose to have too which is so stupid of microsoft to not have options to delete all those you didnt choose, or all of them completely. Also there should be a constant blocked cookies database that doesnt delete as well, and there isnt one you can save which is again retarded. Why dont these guys fix their stuff? dont they have like 50,000 employees?? What the hell do they do all day?

So anyway..How do I save my "chosen cookies" list, and how do I save my blocked cookies list so I can paste them in again later so I dont have to choose them every time. This saves time and annoyance.

I love whoever figures this one out for me!!! Thx, B

Welcome

You can Import/Export cookies using the browser. In IE is under File>Import/Export.

A better option would be to use a program that lets you choose what cookies to save.

CCleaner has this option.

But import what??

What am i supposed to import though? if i try that it shows a text file called cookies.txt.

So am I supposed to copy my cookies list and then paste it into a text file???? and then direct the import to that text file????

How am I supposed to make the list of wanted cookies?
How am I supposed to import it exactly, in what form from where and how?

How can I do the same with cookies I always want to block? In detail please.
thx
