Google chrome is the all-time favorite browser for most internet users all over the world. There is no doubt that it is one of the best web browsers out now. But many users might experience some system hang issue while using the chrome browser.
Yes, Google chrome can eat up your system resources and can cause system hanging issues. But, like this system slow issue, you may think of an alternative for Google Chrome at some point. It is also essential to export all the bookmarks to the new browser from google chrome too.
Since most people were using chrome for a long time and were saving all the bookmarks, it is not easy to set up and keep all the bookmarks one by one.
So here we are looking into the steps for exporting chrome bookmarks to a new browser.
Steps to Export Chrome Bookmarks
Step 1: Open Google Chrome browser and click on the menu icon (3 vertical dots at the top right corner).
Step 2: In the menu list, you can see ‘Bookmarks’ as the 6th item.
Step 3: Hover the Bookmarks option, or click on it. It will expand the sub-menus.
Step 4: You can see ‘Bookmark manager’ as the 4th option in the submenu list. Click on it.
Step 5: Now, the Bookmark manager page will be opened in a new tab. On the page, you can see all the saved bookmarks in chrome.
Step 6: Now, click on the 3 vertical dots on the top right corner of that page. (3 dots within the blue header bar).
Step 7: Once you click on that, you can see menu options.
Step 8: From the list, click on ‘Export bookmarks’.
Step 9: Now, the bookmarks will be saved to the system as an HTML file.
Choose a name for the file and the location to save the exported bookmarks. Done, now the chrome bookmarks are exported and saved to the system.
Alternatively, the chrome export bookmarks option can be done directly by accessing the Bookmark manager without menu clicks.
For that, open a new tab on your browser, enter the following URL in the address bar, and hit enter.
The Bookmark manager page will be opened directly, and you can skip the above steps up to 4. Then you can proceed further from step 5 onwards to export the bookmarks.
How to Import Bookmarks to Chrome
Same as what we did for exporting bookmarks, we can import bookmarks to chrome too. For that, follow the steps below.
Step 1 to 4 is the same in both cases, and we need to enter the Bookmark manager section.
Step 5: Now, on the bookmark manager page, click on the three vertical dots.
Step 6: From the menu, click on the ‘Import bookmarks’ option.
Step 7: Now, the file selection window will pop up, and you can select the already saved bookmark HTML file and click open.
The bookmarks will be imported to Google Chrome, and you can start using them.
