How to Import And Export Bookmarks Into Google Chrome


Using Google Chrome Bookmarks, you may store a web page to a specific web browser so that you can view that page fast at a later time. If you are using a new computer or browser, you may transfer your bookmarks from your old computer into your new computer, ensuring that your new browser is identical to your old one.

Similarly to other online browsers, Chrome has the option of saving sites so that you may quickly find them later on in your browsing history. Furthermore, if you have Chrome linked to your Google account, you will be able to access your bookmarks from any device that is also running Chrome.

While Chrome does not provide a mechanism to migrate your bookmarks to another browser, it does provide a simple way to store, export, and import your bookmarks if you need to do so from a device that does not have access to your Google account.
