by Sagnik Roy on May 16, 2014

Bookmarks saved in Google Chrome can be easily transferred to other browsers which come in very handy for users who work on different browsers and switch them very frequently. These bookmarks can also be saved as a bookmark file and shared with others on different computers. Let’s see a step by step process on how to export bookmarks from Google Chrome and accessed in a number of other browsers.

Exporting Bookmarks From Google Chrome

  • First, click on the Chrome menu button which is located at the top-right corner of the Chrome window beside the address bar. The icon is represented by three lines horizontally stacked.

This file can be shared with others and they can easily access the bookmarks stored within by importing this file in any browser of their choice.
