Create and find bookmarks

Instead of memorising long web addresses, use browser bookmarks to easily save the webpages you’d like to revisit. To create a bookmark for the page you’re on, click the bookmark icon in the address bar. You can then find your new bookmark on the bookmarks bar at the top of your browser window or via the Chrome menu Chrome menu.

Add bookmarks

The easiest way to create a bookmark is to click the bookmark icon in the address bar. Here are other ways that you can quickly create bookmarks:

  • Use keyboard shortcuts: Ctrl+D (Mac: ⌘-D)
  • Import bookmarks from other browsers via the Chrome menu
  • Manually add a bookmark. Right-click the bookmarks bar and select Add page.
  • Drag a link from the page that you're viewing to the Bookmarks bar or a bookmark folder to create a bookmark for the link. Similarly, you can also drag the globe or lock icon in the address bar to create a bookmark for your current page.

Find your bookmarks

If you can’t remember where you filed that one bookmark, search for it directly from the address bar. Type the name of the bookmark and look for the bookmark icon next to the results that appear, which indicates matches from your bookmarks.

You can also see all your bookmarks in 3 places:

  • Bookmarks bar: The bar is docked under your address bar by default for easy access. If you don’t see it, you can find it by opening a new tab. To toggle the display of the bar, just press Ctrl+Shift+B (Mac: ⌘-Shift-B).
  • Bookmarks menu: Click the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar and select Bookmarks.
  • Bookmark manager: The bookmark manager makes it easy for you to organise bookmarks. Click the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar and go to Bookmarks > Bookmark manager.

Use bookmark folders to keep your bookmarks organised. To create a folder, right-click the bookmarks bar and select Add folder.
