Hi all:

The problem with the imported from IE folder drove me crazy for a while, but
after doing some serious thinking and exploring, if you take the following
steps carefully, you would not have to worry about it:

1. While in Chrome, open Bookmarks manager, control+shift+o.
2. tab to the treeview, and use your up and down arrows until you find
imported from IE folder and press enter to choose it.
3. tab to the bookmark list.
4. press the home key to take you to the top of this list.
5. press shift+end key to select from current location to the end of
the list.
6. cut the selection, control+x.
7. GO back to the treeview, shift+tab.
8. Use your up and down arrows and find bookmarks bar, and press enter
to choose it.
9. tab to the bookmark list.
10. paste your folders and bookmarks, control+v.
11. GO back to the treeview, shift+tab.
12. Use your up and down arrows and find Imported from IE, and press
enter to choose it.
13. press the delete key and get rid of it.

If you don't like where your bookmarks are being saved, do the following:

1. when on a page you want to save, press control+d to add bookmark.
2. You are focused on the edit box for the name.
3. If you don't like the name, Type over the name since its selected
and press tab to go to the next option.
4. If you like the name, then press tab to go the next option.
5. You are now on the bookmark folder button menu.
6. If you don't want the current folder, press spacebar to open it and
use the up and down arrows to choose a folder you want and press enter to
choose it.
7. if you don't want it in a sub folder, then choose bookmarks bar.
8. It is important to remember that Chrome remembers the last folder
you choose.
9. Once you are hhappy with the folder, press tab until you find the
done button and press enter to choose it.

Hi all: I actually do alt-d to highlight the url in the address bar;
copy it to the clipboard. If I'm on a hunt for something and want to save a
few addresses as bookmark; I have a notepad file open. If I need to; ai
write som e identifier above the url; apst it in on its own line below the
identifier. When I have the ones I want to put into favorites; I call up old
Internet Explorer and do control-o; paste in the url; then alt-a to grab
that as a favorite. I do the same with the ones I've caught with Crome. So;
basically; I'm still using IE--instead of getting a third-party favorites
manager. I just can't stand not having my favorites conveniently available
on my hard drive ready to grab sith my hotkey anywhere. Yes; it may not be
the fastest way imaginable; but it works and I get the favorites where I
want them and can move them into their proper folder/subfolder to my heart's
content.

But no way to actually organize them in folders like IE? What will happen if
I import all my folders from IE?

Hi Sharron,



I actually found bookmarks the hardest transition when I first moved from IE
to chrome, but now use chrome all the time and almost never use IE any more.
One tip I can give regarding bookmarks which I found really helpful with
Chrome is there is a key combination to quickly access bookmarks in a list
similar to how IE displays them. If you press and hold ALT and then press F
(it should say context menu at this stage), then release alt and f, press b
(it should say something like bookmarks sub menu), simply press right cursor
key and you're in the list of bookmarks. I realised As I wrote that it
actually sounds more complicated than it actually is , but I do find this
key stroke a really quick and easy way of accessing bookmarks in chrome.
Hope that helps.



Paul

What do you mean as menus being quite as deep as? I'm confused about
bookmarks for example in both Firefox and Google Chrome. IE is so simple. I
don't know what I'm missing here.

I don't think there is one best web browser. The chromium-based ones are
okay, although I try to avoid actual google chrome because of its spying.
I'd much rather use brave it blocks ads and lets me read things where other
browsers just say you have to subscribe or allow ads. I like firefox for
the fact that its menus aren't buried quite as deep as chromium-based
browsers. Other than the menus they all basically work the same, so there
really is no reason to restrict yourself to only using one browser.

Hi all:



Please post your recommendations of what you think is the best web
browser to use with the latest version of JAWS. I seem to go back and forth
on this and would like to settle down and really learn using what folks
think is best.



Thanks.





Best,
