A Step by Step Guide to Creating, Accessing and Organizing Chrome Bookmarks

Bookmarks in Chrome make it possible to chronicle all your favorite web pages in one convenient location. The extensions available in Chrome give you the ability to set aside internet pages you come across while surfing the web.

There is no need to memorize long URLs, or search through your sprawling history to find a page you wish to revisit. You can access and organize bookmarks with just the click of a button.

There are a few answers to the question, “how do you bookmark a page?” All you have to do is, once your Chrome browser has found the website you want to bookmark, click the star icon located to the far right of the search bar. You can also use the simple keyboard hot key, Ctrl+D to make bookmarks in Chrome.

Two more methods are to right click the bookmarks bar and select “Add Page,” or drag the highlighted link (or icon to the left of the link) of the page you are viewing, and drop it in the bookmarks bar. You can use bookmarks for books you want to come back to, articles you spent hours researching, or any other online site or service you want to make sure you do not lose upon closing the browser.

Now that you know how to make bookmarks in Chrome, you are going to have to know how to access them. Luckily, finding bookmarks in Chrome is just as simple as creating them, and there are just as many ways of going about it. You can simply type the name of the bookmarked webpage into the search bar if you remember it, and the bookmark star icon will turn yellow if it recognizes it.

There is also a bar located by default under the search bar dedicated to bookmarks in Chrome. If it is not appearing automatically, press Ctrl+Shift+B to toggle the display. Bookmarks can also be found by clicking the Chrome menu in the toolbar and selecting “Bookmarks.”

Organizing bookmarks in Chrome is not a problem at all. You can create and name different folders in your bookmark manager. To access the bookmark manager, click on the Chrome menu (again, in the browser toolbar) where you will drag the mouse over “Bookmarks.” From Bookmarks, a drop down menu will appear, from which you will select “Bookmark manager.”
