    Hold on there, purplelover. I summoned someone to come help. See if she will. I would, but don't know much about the Chrome browser.

    Okay here is where I am at. I have the contacts/address book downloaded on my desktop. Woo Hoo!
    Hi Eileen.


    Now I need my favorite places saved. I went to Chrome -contacts-more-import
    and CSV. if I import it gives me no choice and downloads contacts again.
    I want my favorite places...
    After I get my favorites downloaded I will need help putting them into Chrome. Just think, another 2 weeks I could have this uninstalled. *sigh*
    Good evening, Eileen. HippsieGypsey asked me to help on this, but I have never been on AOL, and I've just now decided to try out Chrome. I normally use Firefox, so i'm a newbie too. At the moment I'm trying to figure out how to import my favorites from Firefox.

    I'd suggest you wait until either Simrick or TC are back online tomorrow; both have gone to bed.

    Wynona and HippsieGypsey thanks so much for trying to help. I really appreciate it. I am just getting wary of how long it takes.

    Tomorrow is another day.

    @HippsieGypsie See if this will help. Import or export bookmarks - Chrome Help

    @purplelover can you export your favorites from AOL Browser as an html file? If you can, I think we can import them into Chrome.

    I believe you set up a gmail email account, if I am not mistaken. You would want your contacts in your gmail account, not in your browser. If I am wrong, I am sure f14tomcat or Simrick will tell me.

    In my test AOL, I did the following:

    Clicked Favorites in upper right corner. Clicked Manage. Clicked Save My Favorite Places. Saved it to the Desktop.

    Went to LinkaGoGo, the online favorites and bookmark manager

    Chose Internet Explorer. Browsed to Desktop to get the AOL file of favorites. Clicked Convert. Downloaded and saved the converted file as HTML. In the Download Folder.

    That file (the HTML) can now be imported to Chrome.

    In Chrome, go to the Menu (three dots upper right corner). Click Bookmarks--->Import Bookmarks and Settings. You get this.

    Click the drop-down arrow and choose Bookmarks HTML file, click Choose file, browse for the HTML file you created and Import it.

    You can't go directly from AOL to Chrome. But, since IE uses HTML as both Import and Export format, the trick is to make it think you're going to IE. Chrome can Import from HTML, and thinks it probably got it from IE!

    Just a little fake-out......

    Talking of AOL this appears to be stirring a few of the AOL users heads, no one seems to know what exactly they are up to or who it applies to.
