I presently have a Dell Laptop, Windows 8.1 OS and Chrome Browser.
How do I transfer bookmarks from my old Dell Laptop to a new computer that has a Windows 10 OS still using the Chrome Browser?
Thank you for your help,
Ron

Hi Ron

I'll assume it's as easy in Chrome as it is in Firefox...

You should find Bookmarks in the menu somewhere, click around, it might be behind the 3 elipses --- click em. You should see (Bookmarks) Import / Export, click Export. I'm sure you'll be exporting an .html file - save the bookmarks file somewhere. In Firefox it's named bookmarks.html. You might also be able to "Show All Bookmarks" from the bookmarks drop-down, you should be able to export from there as well.

To Import the bookmarks file into your new version of Chrome simply Import the saved bookmarks.html file back.

Firefox, maybe Chrome won't drop bookmarks back in exactly like it was before... it's mostly correct but some stuff gets put in an "Other" folder. You just need to keep your bookmarks straight, and these "Other" bookmarks can be dragged/dropped back into the correct locations. It's really easy, my problem is I will forget, and I have to think about where in the Bookmarks drop-down I had some of my links -- honestly, I sometimes just leave em alone.
