Bookmarks are web addresses that you save for future reference. Internet Explorer calls them “Favorites”. If you recently switched to Chrome from IE, this will be called “Bookmarks”. This article explains how to manage bookmarks.

Chrome Bookmarks Location
Where do you find bookmarks on Chrome? There are a couple places where you can access bookmarks.
The easiest way to access them is to open chrome://bookmarks on a new tab. You can open links, add, edit or remove bookmarks from this location.
Another way to open the bookmarks manager is by going to Settings > Bookmarks.
Add New Bookmarks
To add a new bookmark, you can use the keyboard shortcut CTRL + D or click the star icon in the address bar.
When you click the star icon or press CTRL + D, Chrome will ask you to give the bookmark a name and select a folder to save it in. You can either keep the page’s title as the bookmark name or give a custom name.
This star icon will turn blue after you bookmark a page. This also helps you identify if you are on a page that you have already bookmarked.
To edit bookmarks, open the bookmarks manager by visiting chrome://bookmarks on a new tab.
Find the bookmark that you want to edit and click the three-dots settings icon against it.
Make required changes and click Save.
Export or Import Bookmarks
You can either export bookmarks from Chrome to other browsers or import bookmarks from other browsers. The Bookmarks Manager has an option to do this manually.
To export to import bookmarks, go to the chrome://bookmarks page and click the three-dots icon on the top-right corner.
Choose Import or Export and follow the prompts.
