If you'd like to switch to Online Storage, you can do so via File > My Account > Switch Account

First make sure you are using Avant Browser that is installed on a PC. The USB version does not include the Online Storage Menu.

To access the "Online Storage Menu"...



1. On the Avant Browser Menu (usually at the top), Select File... Then Select My Account... Then Select Switch account...

You should now see a popup called "Avant online Storage"

2. Click the "Sign up..." tab and complete the registration info.

Once Completed you can return to the "Avant Online Storage" menu as shown above.

3. This time enter your email address and password that you registered.

The "Avant online Storage" pop up has three options

"Log me in Automatically"- Will save your "Avant Online Storage" email address and password and will not ask for them when starting Avant.

"I am using a public computer"-Normally Avant browser will leave your "Online Storage" files on the pc. This will cause them to be removed when Avant Browser is closed.

"Show This Dialog at startup"-Will show the "Avant Online Storage" pop-up each time Avant is started allowing you to enter your "Online Storage" login.


4. Select options and click "Login"



Once logged into Avant using your "Online Storage" email address and password, it's time to import your bookmarks and other items.

To Import Bookmarks and other Settings...


1. On the Avant Browser Menu, Select File... Then Select "Import".

2. Select "User Data From Another Account". Click Next.

3. Select "From My Local Avant Browser Profile. Click Next.

4. Select which items you would like to import into your "Online Storage Account"

5. If Successful, You Should Get A Prompt Saying "The Selcted Item(s) Have Been Successfully Imported." Click Ok to exit the prompt.

Now the items you imported should be stored in your "Online Storage Account" and you should be able to access them anywhere you use Avant browser.


Hope this helps!!

I forgot to mention-

Once you have imported your items, make sure to-

Go to the Avant Browser Menu... Select Tools... Select Avant Browser Options

Go to "Online Storage" and select which items to save in your "Online Storage" Account"

D'oh! I think that's it. I know that I used it on at least one PC - so it was probably this one. Thanks!

Hi

I have a similar problem, I want to switch the Online Storage off,
because my computer is used by many people at the moment.
I do not have the menuitem: File > My Account > Switch Account either.
I use Ver. 11.5 Build 21

How do I switch Online Storage on/off then ?
