How do i get my old bookmarks Cakespoon 8/9/09 9:42 PM
I just got a new computer because my old one burned out and added the old hard drive as a back up on the new one. My question is how do i get my bookmarks off my old hard drive so i can use it on the new computer? I was able to get boath firefox and IE bookmarks off the old hard drive buy manualy finding their files and moving them to the new drive, but i can't find the chromes bookmark file. My old chrome was on XP pro 32bit, and my new one is on a Vista Priemum 64bit.

press CTRL+SHIFT+B to open the bookmarks manager. click on tools > export html to your desktop where it's easy to find

drag and drop it to a flash drive and load it into the new computer

That wont work. The old computer doesent work at all, and the hard drive from it is now deive E: in the new computer and it won't let me boot into XP on my old HD in the new computer, i can only use my new Vista then go to explorer and move the files manualy, or use the import feature from my new chrome on my old chrom files (thats how i did it with firefox) but i don't know where to find the file to import.

The old bookmarks will be at USERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Bookmarks.bak

On your new computer, you can move the file Boomarks.bak to:
C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

I have just had to have my OS (Windows 7) re-installed following a nasty virus that somehow got through my defences.
I was running Acronis True Image non-stop back-up onto another HDD, and that is still intact and accessible.  
I have read the posts on this forum, but still cannot find my old Chrome bookmarks to import into the new installation.
Can anyone help?

^ We have the same problem.

Thanks.

I followed the instruction above and it only imported bookmarks from other browsers (only the default bookmarks from IE) and didn't transfer bookmarks from my old chrome (bookmarks I made).

I need help. Thanks.

Problem solved. Just copy the entire Google folder to the new directory in windows. Old bookmarks will just show up in your browser. No need to import. :)
