Yes, That's the way I do it, too, John. I have made a shortcut to the Favorites folder located in C:\users\"Username"\, and can select any favorite from that folder, or drop newly created shortcuts into that folder. The thing I might warn of is that after August of this year, Internet Explorer will no longer be supported. If they take Internet Explorer away in a future update of Windows 10, that Favorites folder may go away. So I would suggest copying that folder to another location before Internet Explorer is removed from Windows 10, and there is a chance that Windows will remove that folder as well.

I never import into chrome, I just keep the old favorites folder and
its easy to add a new page to that list by doing control-l and copying
the text to the clipboard and then you can go to your favorites folder
and create a shortcut and you are done and you never have to fool with
all those horrible bookmark folder. I have this folder sorted by
date, so its really cool that way.

The problem is that when I go to the Bookmark Manager and then
try to open the list of favorites imported from IE so that I can
copy and paste them into the list of Chrome bookmarks, it takes
forever. I have about 250 favorites imported from IE, and when I
try to open the list under the bookmark manager, my computer goes
silent for about a half hour while each favorite is opened
without completing the operation, and so I just cancel it,
because who knows how long it will take. It's just too much of a
hassle to merge the two lists into one.

Hi again, Gerald. When you did the paste operation, were you in
the actual list of bookmarks in the folder where you wanted to
move the imported bookmarks. It won't work if you are only in
the folder list.

I have tried this method, and it doesn't work.

Hi, Tom. To move the bookmarks imported from Internet Explorer,

1. Open Google Chrome.

2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus O to open Bookmarks Manager.

3. TAB to the folders list, and open Imported from Internet Explorer.

4. TAB to the list of bookmarks, and select all with CONTROL plus A.

5. Press the Applications key or SHIFT plus F10, and Arrow down to
CUT, and press ENTER.

6. Open the folder to which you want to move the bookmarks.

7. Perform a paste operation with CONTROL plus V.

That should move them all at once to the new folder.

Google Chrome

Hello again, everyone.

I recently have imported my Internet Explorer favorites into
Google Chrome, but currently, they are in a separate list called
“imported from Windows Internet Explorer.

How can I migrate this list over to the main bookmarks bar in
Google Chrome?

I did this once, but can’t recall how I did it.

I’m using the latest Jaws 2021 update on a Windows 10 PC here.

Thanks for any help.
