I want to find out how many cookies have been stored by my internet explorer browser. Is there anyway I could do that?

Thanks,

okay...I found the answer. They are stored in cookies folder somewhere in your user area. Now the next question is how to understand the format of such file.

Here is a sample from one of the files : How do I understand what these numbers are...

You are not going to figure out what the numbers mean since there is no standard to what is in cookies. It can be clear as text or be some code or hashed string.

Mozilla has a built in cookie manager and there are other programs out there that let you read cookies and manage them.
