You save Chrome bookmarks like the little odds and ends buried in a shoebox. The links are meant to be visited often or later. Each of these links can be a precious corner of the web for you. That’s why it’s important to export Chrome bookmarks and keep them backed up always.
Mishaps happen. Fortunately, Chrome lets you save bookmarks in a single HTML file and also sync them automatically across devices.
So let’s see how easy it is to back up and export your Chrome bookmarks—both manually and automatically.
Step 1: Launch Chrome.
Step 2: Click the Chrome Customize and Control button (the three dots on the top right). Select Bookmarks > Bookmark Manager from the menu. Alternatively, right-click anywhere on the Bookmarks bar if it’s visible.
Step 3: In the Bookmark Manager window, click the Organize menu button (the three dots on the top right). The select Export bookmarks.
Step 4: Chrome opens the File Explorer dialog box so that you can save your bookmarks as an HTML file. Use this file to import your bookmarks into another Chrome browser or any other browser via its import dialog screen.
Step 5: Save this Chrome bookmarks HTML file in a designated place like the Documents folder. You can export it directly to a connected flash drive too or save it to the cloud on Dropbox or Google Drive.
You can also choose to organize your bookmarks before you export them by selecting Sort by name on the above menu in the Bookmark Manager.
To restore your bookmarks, you just have to import them back into the browser from the same Bookmark Manager window. Click the three dots in the top right corner, then select Import bookmarks.
Chrome will display the Open file dialog box. Go to your bookmark HTML file, select it, then click on Open to import your bookmarks. All your bookmarks will be retrieved.
Hi steffeo, the Export function is a bit of a throwback to earlier times.
You an create a readable HTML "export" file using a two-step approach:
(1) Make a fresh JSON-format bookmark backup.
The following article has the steps (make sure to save the file in a convenient location): Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer.
(2) Use an online converter to export the HTML format.
I have a tool for that on my site here: https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/bookbackreader.html
In the converted file, the mobile bookmarks usually are toward the end.
I believe this is the point were I change browser back to Chrome. I rather be spied on, than loosing my data, using an app that freeze, crash and ask top contributors on a firefox forum getting replies like this.
Hi steffeo, you did not mention any problems with freezes or crashes. If you want to receive assistance with those problems, you could provide more details. It is up to you.
