    Difficulty exporting Google Chrome Bookmarks


    I have version 74.0.3729.157 on my computer, which I wish to temporarily un-install, and then install the latest offering for 64bit systems. The current version may have been compromised.

    I have reached the bookmark manager, but can not see the option to export the bookmarks.

    If someone has had this problem here, I hope they will ne able to assist. Please!

    Yes, I can confirm this: I just went through the exercise and saw that you must dig a bit deeper into the menu hierarchy, as described in the preceding post to actually export bookmarks. Thanks!

    Hi Folks

    do it the easy way :

    1) Open another browser -- I know a lot of people hate IE11 but it's fine for this purpose or FF works as well --if you don't like the browser you can always uninstall afterwards.

    2) Use the browser's own menu from Import bookmarks / favourites from another browser

    3) scroll to Chrome.

    Q.E.D job done. !!! No messing about or trying to find hidden or hard to find options.

    Now if you change back again to Chrome -- say a new release or whatever - do the thing in reverse --import bookmarks / favourites from another browser and scroll to the browser you used for the import.


    Cheers

    One more way is to backup a file - Chrome\User Data\Default\Bookmarks
    You can even backup nameless bookmarks, which can not be exported.
