Add, manage and import bookmarks

You can save shortcut links to your favourite web pages using Bookmarks in Google Toolbar. The links that you save are stored in your Google Account, so you can access them from any Internet-connected device. If you already have bookmarks saved in Internet Explorer, you can import those into the Bookmarks tool.
