I'm trying to get iCloud on my PC to sync its bookmarks with Safari, not Internet Explorer.
According to Apple's documentation, it is possible to sync iCloud bookmarks to Safari on Windows:
You can sync bookmarks between your computer and your iOS device. When syncing is enabled, all bookmarks will sync. You can sync bookmarks with the following applications:
- Safari (Mac OS X)
- Safari for Windows (Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7)
- Microsoft Internet Explorer
My bookmarks are syncing fine between iPhone and iPad, so I'm sure I've got that end set up correctly.
I do have Safari 5.1.1 (7534.51.22) installed on my Windows 7 PC.
However, my iCloud control panel is only offering me the option to sync Bookmarks with Internet Explorer, and not Safari:
Things I've tried:
- I've read through the notes on Apple's iCloud: Troubleshooting iCloud Bookmarks, and can't see anything about it failing to spot that Safari is installed.
- Uninstalled and re-installed Safari
Is there anything else I should try, to get iCloud on Windows to offer syncing with Safari?
(I daren't turn on syncing Bookmarks with Internet Explorer, as I have hundreds of bookmarks there, that I don't want synced to my mobile devices)
