In What folder are Google Chrome Bookmarks stored on Windows 7 ? FeralReason 12/3/10 6:50 PM
My wife's user profile went belly up on Windows 7 and I had to create a new one for her. All of the old files remain but we cannot log on to her old user profile. I want to transfer her Google Chrome Bookmarks to the new profile folders but cannot figure out where these bookmarks are stored. I don't have the option of opening Google in her old account and exporting them.

Does anyone know how to do this ?

C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

I can't find such a file on Windows 7.  The only options under C:\Users\User are the usual Contacts, Desktop, Donloads, Favorites, Links, My Documents, My Music/Pictures/Videos, Saved Games, Searches. I've tried searching 'programs and files' for "AppData" but get a nil return.  
i want to know the location so I can put the address into the instructions for the backup to my external hard drive.

you have to replace<USER> with your username, the one you use to log into windows

You may also have to enable viewing of hidden files and folders.

For Windows 7:
Find the Google Chrome application you always click on to start the program. Right click that, go to properties. In properties under "shortcut" it should say "Open File Location." Click that. That should bring you Google\Chrome\Application. Click on the "Chrome" button on the top of the window, in the directory list. Then click on User Data, then Default. The Bookmarks and Bookmarks.bak files should be there, copy them to wherever you like.

What about freakin Vista??? Where are they stored? Why can't people give broader answers that help more people? Not everyone has Windows 7.

Chrome’s bookmarks are kept

In Windows 7: \\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

In XP: \Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Bookmarks

However, an easier and safer way to get access would be to export them (Menu=>Bookmarks=>Bookmark Manager, then choose Organize=>Export bookmarks to HTML File) and work on that copy.

When you finish, you can go back into the bookmark manager, remove all the entries and import the revised bookmarks.

vasa1 is right. The AppData folder is considered a system folder and is hidden by default to prevent accidental deletes and such. In Windows Explorer click Organize, then Folder and Search options. Click the view tab and then click "show hidden files, folders and Drives.

Go to chrome://bookmarks/ . This will launch the Bookmarks manager which lists bookmarks in Windows Explorer style.
