Import or export bookmarks

If you've got bookmarks or favorites stashed away in another browser, you can easily import them into Google Chrome. Similarly, you can always get your bookmarks out of Chrome by exporting them as a HTML file.

  1. Click the Chrome menu Chrome menu.
  2. Select Bookmarks.

If you haven't yet created any bookmarks in Chrome, the bookmarks you import will show up directly on the bookmarks bar, normally docked underneath the address bar. If you already have bookmarks within Chrome, the bookmarks you import will appear in a new folder called "Imported from Firefox" or "Imported from IE," located at the end of the bar. You can also find your bookmarks by clicking the Chrome menu and selecting Bookmarks.
