Using the Bookmarks Bar

  1. Display the Bookmarks Bar.Press +Shift+ , or presscommandl+Shift+ if you're on a Mac. A horizontal Bookmarks Bar should appear beneath your address bar.
    • Alternatively, press the menu button and select "Bookmarks" → "Show Bookmarks Bar."
  2. Access your bookmarks.Your first several bookmarks appear as buttons on the bar. Click on the on the far right of the bar to view your other bookmarks in a drop-down menu.
  3. Right-click a bookmark for more options.The right-click drop down menu includes "Open New Tab," "Edit" to change the name or URL, "Delete," and other options. You can also left click and drag the bookmark to change its position on the bar.
    • To with a one-button mouse, hold down Control as you click. Some laptop trackpads interpret a "two finger press" as right click.
  4. Add folders.Choose the Add Folder option from the same drop-down menu. The new folder will appear on your bookmark bar. Click and drag on the bookmarks to drop them into the folder.
    • When bookmarking a page, you can select this folder from the drop-down Folder field to place it there directly.
  5. Open a whole folder.Right-click a folder and choose "Open All Bookmarks" to bring up every bookmark inside that folder. You can also select this from an empty spot on the Bookmark Bar. This opens all bookmarks that arenotin a folder, as well as all bookmarks in the "Other Bookmarks" folder.

Managing All Bookmarks

  1. Update Google Chrome (recommended).From late 2014 until June 2015, Chrome experimented with a more visual, tile-based Bookmark Manager.If you haven't updated Chrome since that time, the instructions below will not match your browser.
    • If you're in the minority of users who preferred the visual system, install the Bookmark Manager extension from the Chrome Web Store.
    • Apart from this temporary change, the Bookmark Manager has stayed mostly the same since a revamp in 2010 (version 5) and bug fixes in 2011 (version 15).
  2. Open Bookmark Manager.Press +Option+ on Windows, orCommand+Option+ on Mac. This opens Bookmark Manager in a new tab.
    • You can also use the Bookmarks option in the top menu or the menu button, or right-click the Bookmarks Bar and select it from the drop down menu.
  3. Arrange your bookmarks.Click on the Bookmarks Bar folder in the left pane. Drag the individual bookmarks in the right pane in whatever order you like. Drag bookmarks you don't use often to the Other Bookmarks folder. This folder always exists, but will not show up on your bar unless it has something in it.
  4. Create new folders.Click the word Folders at the top of the left pane, then Add Folder. This will create a folder inside whichever folder you have selected. Drag bookmarks into folders however you would like them organized.
    • All bookmarks and folders will show up inside "Bookmarks Bar" or "Other Bookmarks." You cannot delete or rename these top-level folders.
  5. Alphabetize a folder.Choose a folder in the left pane. Above the right pane, click the word Organize. Select "Reorder by title" to arrange all bookmarks in that folder alphabetically.

Using Bookmarks on Mobile Devices

  1. Find the Bookmarks menu option.There is no browser bar on the Chrome mobile browser.To view your bookmarks, touch the menu button, then select Bookmarks.
  2. Place bookmarks in folders.Touch and hold the bookmark you want to move. Once it's highlighted, select any other bookmarks you are also moving. Touch the icon in the top right corner with a picture of a folder and an arrow. Select the folder where you would like to move the selected bookmarks.
  3. Display Bookmarks as a list instead.If you prefer a list view to the default icon presentation, try the following:
    • Navigate to chrome://flags/#enable-new-ntp in your Chrome mobile browser.
    • Change "Default" to "Enabled"
    • Scroll to the bottom of the screen and hit "Relaunch now" to restart your browser and make the change.
    • Note: All the options on this "flags" page are experimental. Options change and disappear frequently. If there is no "enable new ntp" option in your version of Chrome, this step is not possible.

    How do I get a toolbar with icons on it to show?

    Right click a Bookmark, click Edit, delete the name of the Bookmark, and you should now only have an icon. If you do this with all your bookmarks on the bookmark bar, you should first have much more room on the bar, and second a bar only with icons. You should of course only do this with Bookmarks that you know what icon belongs to it. Otherwise it will get confusing.

    This will happen automatically when you have too many bookmarks to place on your bookmarks bar.

  • If you prefer the bookmarks as a left-hand column, as some other browsers display them, open a new window and go to Bookmark Manager. Shrink this down to a narrow column and move it to the left of your screen. Narrow your normal browsing window a little so it fits to the right of it.
  • The New Tab page will always show your Bookmarks Bar, even if it's set to hidden.


  • Deleting a Bookmark folder will permanently delete all the bookmarks inside it.
