    As the old saying goes ...

    A picture paints a thousand words ...

    Just wish they had the same feature on the Google Help forums :-(

    This doesn't actually work for me on XP SP2. The only way I can do it is to open a command prompt in the exe's folder (using an XP Power Toy) then chrome.exe --bookmark menu. To be blunt, isn't this basic functionality that should be built in? I know there is an extension, but it isn't as good as the command line option.

    I also tried writing a .bat file, but again, the --bookmark-menu command was ignored. Can anyone on XP help to make it possible to normally open Chrome with the Bookmark menu, e.g. when you execute an html page?

    Thanks

    In this way you wanted that check the tool bar space before adding the bookmark button.
