Bookmarks are a helpful tool in any browser. But when you switch browsers or need to set up a new device, they often lag behind. However, you can easily transfer them – we’ll show you how to export bookmarks on Google Chrome.
It can take quite a bit of time when you need to set up a new tech device. But even if you have decided to use a different browser, setting it up can take a while.
Fortunately, you don’t have to transfer everything manually in this case. Because browsers like Google Chrome now allow you to easily export your settings and bookmarks. So you can easily import them back into the new browser or onto your new computer.
Here’s how to export bookmarks on Google Chrome
There are several ways to export your bookmarks from Chrome. For example, you can have it output as an HTML file. You can then use this file to transfer your bookmarks to another computer, for example.
To do this, click on the three-point menu in the top right corner of your browser. Here you will find the Bookmarks sub-item where you need to click on the Bookmark Manager option.
Your bookmarks are now displayed here. In a new bar next to the search field, you’ll find another three-dot menu at the top-right corner of your browser window.
From there you can select “Export Bookmarks”. Find a storage location on your computer or an external storage medium.
You can then import the exported file into your new browser or into the browser on your new device.
Import bookmarks from other browsers
However, if you want to switch to Google Chrome from another browser, you can import the bookmarks from your old browser even more easily. This works either via an HTML file or via the import function in Chrome.
To do this, navigate back to the bookmark manager. In the three-dot menu, on the other hand, select the “Import bookmarks” option.
Now you can select the program from which you want to import the bookmarks – for example Safari or Firefox. With a click on Import you add the bookmarks from your old browser to Chrome.
