Bookmarking Handout Google Chrome

Bookmarking on Google Chrome

Bookmarks can be incredibly useful for easily accessing websites you visit often, and saving websites you would like to return to. This handout will show you how to create and organize bookmarks in Google Chrome.

Creating Bookmarks - Google Chrome

1. To create a bookmark for the page you’re on, click the star icon in the address bar. You can then find your new bookmark on the bookmarks bar at the top of your browser window or go to the wrench (tools) menu.

Here are other ways you can quickly create bookmarks:

2. Use keyboard shortcuts: Ctrl+D (Mac: -D)

3. Import bookmarks from other browsers via the wrench (tools) menu

4. Manually add a bookmark—Right-click the bookmarks bar and select Add page.

5. Drag a link from the page you're viewing 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 icon next to the results that appear, which indicates matches from your bookmarks.

You can also see all your bookmarks in 3 places:

1. 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).

2. Bookmarks menu: Click the wrench icon on the browser toolbar and select Bookmarks.

3. Bookmark manager: The bookmark manager makes it easy for you to organize bookmarks. Click the wrench icon on the browser toolbar and go to Bookmarks > Bookmark manager.

Bookmark Folders

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