can I click on "bookmarks" and have the drop down menu display ONLY the file imported from Safari?

Posted

I am trying to achieve a one click drop down menu without side selection for "Safari". Possibly I need to drag bookmarks and folders from the "Safari" folder into the "unsupported " folder, but when I tried this it doubled everything I drug in.

You should be able to move items from the submenu to the main menu without doubling. For moves and cleanups, are you using the Bookmarks Organizer AKA Library dialog?

I did find that I could move bookmarks and folders out of the "imported from Safari" folder onto the "unsorted bookmarks" folder. Removed the Safari folder and made sure the "bookmarks menu" was empty, and then closed show all bookmarks. Hoping that when I opened Bookmarks from the very top line of Apple menu items, the only list that would pop down would be the one that I just constructed in "unsorted bookmarks". But alas, what pops down is no visible bookmarks. You have to slide down to "unsorted" which pops open a window offset to the right with what I really want to see, the list of bookmarks that I assembled in Unsorted.

It's better not to use the Unsorted Bookmarks folder for your bookmarks. Firefox uses that folder when you click the star icon in the address bar to bookmark a page so you can find them more quickly.

Why not move your bookmarks to the Bookmarks menu, not in a folder?

I will attempt to move my list from unsorted to the Menu. My experimentation earlier had indicated to me that it would not work but I am ready to try anything. This might take a while.

Hopefully it's a select-all, one-drag operation, but I'm only familiar with the Windows version.

Sadly I could not get a select all and simply wound up dragging items from one to the other one at a time. It wasn't that bad because I have them already organized into 14 basic folders which could be drug as a folder. There were also 5 loose url types that also went one at a time.

On Mac you can only do that in the Bookmarks and History Manager (Library)

  • Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks

You can use cut and paste (right-click context menu or the first toolbar button: Organize) if other methods aren't working.
You need to move the bookmarks out of the Unsorted Bookmarks folder and move them to the Bookmarks Menu folder or create a new folder in the Bookmarks Menu folder.
