No and it wouldn't help because every time a new folder with that name would be created and you end up with multiple folders with the same name.

I'm not referring to the "Name: [Folder Name]" box. I'm referring to the "Folder: Bookmarks Menu" box.

You can only create bookmarks in one of the three root folders.

  • The Bookmarks Toolbar folder stores the bookmarks that you see on the (View > Toolbars >) Bookmarks Toolbar.
  • The Bookmarks Menu folder stores bookmarks that you see in the Bookmarks menu and create via "Bookmarks > Bookmark This Page" or "Bookmark This Link" in the right click context menu.
  • The Unsorted Bookmarks folder stores the bookmarks that are created by clicking the star at the right end of the location bar.

Where would you want to create them?

Question owner

I would like it to default to "Bookmarks Toolbar." Currently I have to select the drop-down menu.

Sorry, but I don't know of a way to change the default location to the Bookmarks Toolbar folder.
