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.

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.

This is one of the limitations of Chrome.?? If you import all of your IE Favorites into Chrome, and then add new Bookmarks in Chrome itself, you will wind up with two bookmark lists: the ones from IE and the ones created in Chrome, and there is no way to merge them into a single bookmarks list. Which means that you might have to search both bookmarks lists to find the one you're looking for, which could be a nuisance.

I had this issue as well and exported my bookmarks from Chrome to a file, then edited the file to remove the "Imported From Firefox" folder.


This is pretty simple to do since the Chrome bookmarks are saved in XML, and all bookmarks are child nodes to the folder node they're inside.


Once you remove the folder, just re-import the bookmarks file and you'll be good to go.

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.

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.

Hello,

 

There is a nice and easy way to deal with bookmarks in Chrome, favorites in IE, etc. Personally, I think that accessing and managing bookmarks in Chrome in Firefox is very clunky. By contrast, it is extremely easy to access and manage favorites in IE.

 

If you create a desktop shortcut for your favorites folder, you can open the favorites in whatever browser you have chosen as your default. I have Chrome as my default browser, maintain all my favorites in IE, and open them from the desktop with Chrome. I make no effort to maintain bookmarks in Chrome or Firefox, And in Windows 10, it is very easy to change your default browser via the Control Panel.

 

Regards,

David

 

 


Maria Campbell
 

That's very nice but it still needs to be resolved if Chrome is not the default browser.  I can't find my new bookmarks in Chrome but only if I do a search for them.  Where the heck are they stored?  I'm sorry if this has already been discussed, which I think is the case.

Hi Maria,

 

I havven’t read the previous emails so don’t know if this has already been said but when in Chrome:

 

Press Shift+ Control + o. Then press the down arrow key until you reach the items you have bookmarked.

from, mack I used to think bookmarks in chrome were so important, but they are not. unless you turned it off, the predictor will suggest a site if you only type a few letters. I never need to open chrome bookmarks. as long as I know the name of the site, just type a few letters and hit enter when the site name is read back to you. it's less time consuming than searching through bookmarks.
