Import settings from another browser

When you first download Google Chrome from, your personal data -- like your browsing history and homepage -- is automatically imported from your default browser into Google Chrome. If you want to import additional settings (like bookmarks, search engines, and saved passwords) or settings from another browser, follow these steps:

  1. Close any other browsers that are open.
  2. Open Google Chrome.
  3. Click the Chrome menu Menu on the browser toolbar.
  4. Select Bookmarks.
  5. Click Import bookmark and settings.
  6. In the "Import bookmarks and settings" dialog that appears, select the application that contains the settings you'd like to import.
  7. Click Import.

If you already have bookmarks in Chrome, the imported bookmarks appear in the "Other bookmarks" folder at the end of the bookmarks bar. Want to import bookmarks from another application that's not listed? Use the bookmark manager
