Exporting Favorites (bookmarks) from the Help browser for migration

I'm about to step up from R2010b to R2012b. Last time I did this, all my bookmarks to help browser pages went bye-bye. I've been dredging through my C drive in the hope of finding these saved in some XML file, but that seems a monumental task. Does anyone know how to export & re-import these during migration to a new version?

There should be a “shortcuts.xml” file in your prefdir, in which Help browser bookmarks are stored.
Prefdir can be found by typing “prefdir” at the MATLAB command prompt.
