    Moving Google Chrome bookmarks to a thumb drive.


    I have a crashed Windows 10 HDD that is connected as a slave on a good working PC.
    I want to transfer my Chrome Bookmarks from my bad HDD to a thumb drive.
    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Copy the file bookmarks from here to the user profile path in your working PC C:\Users\myname\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

    In future, I recommend you export your Chrome bookmarks in a .html file and keep them safe. I store mine on OneDrive so the are accessible from any PC.

    Using my new HDD as the master and my bad HDD as a slave, when I go into explorer on the Google HDD to view the tree on my bad HDD, I find User then my Login Name, I do not see, "AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default".

    Using my working PC I went into File Explorer, View, Checked the box for Hidden Items. Now I can see Users, My Login Name, AppData, Local. I do not see Google\Chrome\User Data\Default in the Local file?
    The only folders listed under Local are, Host App Service, Microsoft, Temp.
