Re: Chrome and bookmarks/favorites

Kramlinger, Keith G., M.D.


I have 8 items listed after the Enter you describe, but no Favorites. Is there a way to add it? Thanks, Keith

In IE, I press alt-a to bring up my favorites list, and first-letter
navigation works. I can't find anything this simple using Chrome.

One item in the bookmarks submenu allows you to import favorites

at the end that I was successful. However, nothing seems to have been

Any ideas?
