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. On your computer, close any other browsers that are open.
  2. Open Google Chrome.
  3. At the top right, click More More.
  4. Click Bookmarks and then Import bookmark and settings.
  5. In the "Import bookmarks and settings" dialog that appears, choose the browser that has the settings you want to import.
  6. 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. To import bookmarks from an application that's not listed, export your bookmarks as an HTML file and import the HTML file.
