Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. Parallax 3/16/10 2:44 PM
The Chrome bookmarks bar is excellent and it is great to be able to sync with other computers. I recently discovered I could add folders to the bookmarks bar instead of individual bookmarks. This made organizing bookmarks easier and provided enhanced access to them. The only downside is that folders all look the same, so a previously colourful bar is now filled with identical folders. Not only this doesn't look so nice, but the bookmark icons (generated by the respective sites) help distinguish between them and access them faster. If we could assign icons/images to each folder, it would be perfect. Congrats on a fine browser!

Google Chrome version: 4.0.249.89 (Official Build 38071)
Operating System: windows XP SP3

This would be great.  I agree too.

Before proceeding backup your Chrome Profile in case the following goes terribly wrong. There is a way to change the icons on the bookmarks bar. But unless you are an advanced user the following maybe too difficult for you. Not only that, but you would have to do the following to every one of them one at a time. This could take a long time to comlpete. http://www.tech-recipes.com/rx/3032/google_chrome_how_to_change_icons_on_the_bookmarks_bar/
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. Vampryss 4/13/10 5:15 PM
I also agree.. I have many icons that are the same or blank.. rather than downloading other programs to change this.. it would be nice to be able to change them using a setting in chrome.. awesome browser btw - i use it 99.9% of the time.. :)
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. fatihmed 4/13/10 7:15 PM
I agree with others above..
There should be a Bookmark Manager in options.. So i would change the icons whatever i want to the toolbar above.. In the next version of Chrome... Why not ;)
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. Marko Dog 6/3/10 8:04 AM
In IE you simply right click the icon, chose properties and click on CHANGE ICON. Can't believe that Chrome still doesn't have this capability. All of my bookmarks are sorted in folders appearing on the bar and all looking the same. This then requires descriptions that take up space (rather than just recognizing a custom ICON). I keep going back to IE for this reason alone.

Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. DominicCobb 9/23/10 3:24 PM
HOW to change bookmark icons or favicons on google chrome.
1.) First set-up your bookmarks on firefox the way you want (or the way they are on chrome)
2.) Use the favicon extension on firefox to get all the icons you want for your bookmarks
3.) Make sure chrome is closed
4.) Cut the folder called "Default" in "C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data" and paste to your desktop
6.) Open Chrome and import bookmarks from firefox and all you favourites icons should appear as they do on firefox. DON'T DO anything else! Close chrome.
7.) Cut the folder called "Default" in "C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data" and paste it in "C:\Users\username"
8.) Cut and paste the backed up folder called Default on your DESKTOP to "C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data"
9.) Cut and paste the folder called Default in"C:\Users\username" to "C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data". When it asks to merge folders or replace files say yes for all. ALL DONE

Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. MEGABryant 10/31/10 6:41 PM
Still no update to Chrome with this feature? Great browser, but this is one of the drawbacks, minor, but a drawback!
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. Thanatopsis 11/16/10 5:06 AM
Yes, I also agree that it would be a great added feature to be able to change the folder icons.  Also, thanks DominicCobb for the work around.
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. ovisoft 2/13/11 10:01 AM
I am new to Chrome and I was excited to use a newer browser. I assumed that it has at least same flexibility as Firefox but I was very surprised that it is so complicated to change some icons. Basically this is a work-around scheme, nothing more!
On one link it is suggested to install whatever MySQL server and work from there, of course only for windoze users. Why would I install another application for just changing icons??? Then just above, you are supposed to have firefox, do there some stuff and change than copy and paste info, then import. Common!

Wouldn't be more easy and make more sense to change icons once with theme change? Or this inability could be the failure  in the ground work from Google to not provide such support for an addon, theme or whatever change?
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. bighurk 2/13/11 1:54 PM
Having that ability would be very nice
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. Battletoads 2/26/11 2:03 PM
Changing the icon for a bookmark sounds like such a simple task, but you can't do it. Strange.
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. coloredearth 4/5/11 1:17 AM
Please Google - please give us an easy method of changing the icons on our bookmarks.  Please?!
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. alex.jime04 4/28/11 2:54 AM
Hi everybody,

I just had the same issue and I just did the following:

1- erase previous bookmark.
2 - open new tab and load the wanted site.
3 - Ctrl key + D = creates new bookmark.

Hope this is useful!

Cheers from Costa Rica
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. ajx619 5/2/11 12:15 AM
Hi All,
I had same problem that when i save bookmark on bar the icons were blank.

But now when I open the page by clicking the link on that site's page for example- home link. Then save the bookmark and the icon will show the respective site logo.

If we open page from google search then the saved bookmark will be blank icon.

Cheers!
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. Pedram J 5/2/11 12:33 AM
Hi all,
There is a misunderstanding on this forum. We have two different icon types in the Chrome Bookmark. First one is webpage icon like www.google.com that usually calling favicon (Favorite Icon) that these are a small 16x16 pixel pictures with .ico extension. For example you can find the Google webpage favicon on here:
http://www.google.com/favicon.ico

Second one is Bookmark Folder icon. For this one we've suggested to have ability to change picture or at least its color.

There is a useful extension for changing favicons easily as you like:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/laggbmpbikikiablknnppgglelkncemk

And here is my customized Bookmarks that the Bookmark Folders are same as each other and still we cannot change their icons:

Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. idkmybffjv 8/7/11 4:08 PM
I think a good solution would be to add a bunch of simple stock icons.  Google doesn't have to reinvent the wheel, here's all I'm personally looking for:
I have a music folder, a music note logo for that bookmark would be nice
I follow photography blogs, a little camera
I have a few social networking sites, so a generic friend icon
I buy stuff online from different retailers, a $ icon or something

A little section full of stock icons would be a good start for things like this.  The only reason I don't tidy up my bookmarks bar is because I don't want a bunch of blank folders next to each other.
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. mackmurr 9/5/11 10:37 AM
I'm adding my voice in support.  I have a g-mail bookmark icon (the red M) and I also have a separate bookmark to Contacts, but since it is part of g-mail, it shows the identical icon (again, the red M).
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. i92guboj 9/19/11 2:54 AM
Custom icons for folders would be nice to have. Plus, having an icon often removes the need for a proper title, which means you can fit more elements in the same space.
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. Mitssurujy 9/29/11 2:51 AM
I want it too, it would nice to know that someone at Google is hearing us God Damn it!!!

Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. cGriffith 12/11/11 3:10 PM
oothefuxdis: have you tried to change a bookmark folder with that extension? i installed it but never saw an option to change a folder icon.
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. mariec23 12/28/11 3:42 PM
@oothefuxdis or anyone else, for that matter - I have the "i hate your favicon" extension, and I've created three favicons, but how do I now get them to apply to my bookmarks?  I haven't been able to find that next critical step described anywhere.  Am I supposed to insert that long text (beginning with "data:image") somewhere?  Thanks.
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. Expl0re 12/31/11 11:19 AM
To use "i hate your favicon" effectively:

1. find an image online that you want to use, right click on it and select "Copy image URL"
2. left click on your bookmark to go to the bookmarked website.
3. click on the "i hate your favicon" icon, paste the image URL into the lower box ("Favicon URL"), and click the "add new favicon" button

*one reason why it might not be working for you is -  If the bookmark is for www.google.com but you manually enter in to the upper box "google.com," they are not identical and the favicon won't link.
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. mariec23 12/31/11 3:24 PM
@Expl0re: Thanks for the response, but I'm not working with an image online.  I'm talking about an image I created myself, taking a screenshot of something, cropping it tight, and saving it as an .ico file (it now lives on my hard drive).  So does anyone here know how to use *that* as a new bookmark icon?  Thanks!
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. NC User 333 1/31/12 11:01 AM
upload it to your flicker account or such and then try to use that URL??? maybe that will work mariec23... i don't know, it's just a suggestion i had... :)
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. NC User 333 1/31/12 11:17 AM
mariec23 -- i just tried it with an 18px by 18 px jpg image (uploaded) to flicker made the image private (my viewing only) and copied the image url and it worked for my bookmark bar favicon!!! :) good luck!
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. Declan Z 2/18/12 9:29 AM
@Expl0re: Thanks for the help.  I am trying out "i hate your favicon" - now my question is - is there any way to change the favicon for a javascript bookmark, e.g. instapaper's 'read it later' or pinterest's "pin it' ? Any help appreciated as all these icons defaul to the grey globe and all look the same.  It's so much faster to have a color for the eye to latch onto.
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. midtone 2/21/12 10:01 AM
I think people are missing the real question here.  I have the I Hate Your Favicon extension installed and it works for WEBSITE favicons,  but I can not seem to get it to work for the blue BOOKMARK FOLDER icon.  This is what me and other people are really asking.

Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. Geigerjr 5/8/12 9:57 AM
I agree. Chrome great but distinguishing folders would be a nice easy win for the chrome development team.  

Explorer has that option but it stinks because the only icons that come with Explorer are mostly computer/file management icons not usable for folders like entertainment, financial, research, etc.

So the bottom line is, that if a google programmer reads this; give us icons!!! :)  

Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. E1 5/15/12 6:40 AM
More than 2 years passed and still we don't have this feature! Cmon, it's not that hard to add it. Google, please!
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. inemanja 5/31/12 5:15 AM
yes, but in IE you cannot uses characters like ",:,*,? because IE saves bookmarks as shortcuts (windows files)... there is way to change icon, but it is pretty complicated (with use of external application)... they really should implement easy icon changing...
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. OptosBooks 6/4/12 1:27 PM

Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. sdarrell 7/13/12 7:17 AM
Well, looks like Red Roof Inns knows how to change ICONS. Ever since I used their wifi my Google icon, VPN icon and a few others were converted to their hotel icon. I have had zero success changing them. How's that for customer service, changing your icons where none of us have had similar success?!

I love chrome, but having my easily and quickly identifiable icon size favorite titles in IE is just too important to the way I browse.  Please get to work on this guys.  In this day in age, a company like google should really have no problem implementing something as simple as customization for favorite bar title widths.

Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. Lucas182 11/26/12 9:20 AM
The "I hate your favicon" extension is very buggy and doesn't work half the time.

So, do EXACTLY as DominicCobb says and your icons will have changed. HOWEVER, they will still revert to their original icons when you access that particular web page.

In order to stop this from happening, do the following:

1) Go to  "C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default"
2) There are two files, "Favicons" and "Favicons-journal"
3) Right click on "Favicons"
4) Go to Properties
5) Click on the Security tab
6) On SYSTEM, click Edit
7) In Permissions, DENY Write, click Yes on the dialog, click OK.
8) Repeat steps 6-7 for the other permission profiles (administrators, etc)
9) Repeat steps 3-8, this time for file "Favicons-journal"
10) Done... your icons should stay how they are.. permanently.

Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. Javier Miguelez 1/25/13 10:29 AM
Having customizable icons instead of the simple folder icons in the bookmarks bar should not be very complicated to implement. This would really enhance the experience for the users and the look of the browser
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. Ben Major 2/9/13 10:54 PM

Going on 3 years now in just a few more weeks.  What does it take Google?  X number of people with feedback?  If only 50 people provide feedback there must be thousands that just don't speak up.  
Thanks!  😃

Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. lamakun 3/13/13 2:40 AM
The impossibility to change folder icons in a friendly way is the only reason why I keep using FF instead of chrome. Bookmarks and bookmarks folders are meant to make users' life easier but if I have 20 folder all of them with the same folder icon it has no use.

Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. Darren Gates 3/27/13 2:21 AM
Is it *still* not done? Seriously... I used "I hate your Favicon" years ago in Chrome, which is pretty good, but the lack of folder customisation in the bookmark bar annoyed the hell out of me.

I normally flip back and fore between browsers every couple of years or so, depending on what is working best for my current setup, and the last couple of years was IE (mainly because of problems with other browsers with what I do at work). I'm preferring Chrome to IE10 at the minute though, and want to return to Chrome. But then there is that stupid half a decade old issue again... Some people can, for example, ignore a dead pixel on a TV screen... I'm just not one of those people. I'll see if I can ignore one letter folders (blank name folders just suck when you have a few of them).

Seriously, as a professional programmer this stuff can't be that hard for the people who created the browser in the first place! Changing other peoples (especially old) code in a big project is a massive pain in the arse, trust me, but your own stuff? Nah, on the face of it it's a pretty stupid omission for a really easy change. At least the programmers could post a message saying why it hasn't been done (ie. why it isn't a five minute code change)

Cheers  

Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. Cheryl Coates 4/1/13 12:32 AM
I agree - I'd simply like to colour code my folders (I have matching desktop folders, bookmark folders, Evernote notebooks... across my devices)

Please can we have the ability to customise the folder icon on the bookmarks bar?

Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. Rebecca Moore 4/6/13 4:06 AM
SERIOUSLY!  I have to download Firefox and make changes there that I HOPE will come over here.  The best part about this browser is that you can make it YOURS!!!
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. Jack Gough 4/8/13 3:23 PM
Yep this would be great.  I think its important to note that all of the work arounds that have been posted work for individual site bookmarks and not the "bookmark folders"

Cmon Google get this one implemented!

Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. Jakob Lind 5/30/13 9:33 AM
I have some bookmarks missing icons. and some icons are repeated on multiple bookmarks.
Would be nice to be able to determine which icon I want to use.

Do not care where I have to put it:
Local
URL
Uplaod to google account

Was a little disappointed when I found out you could not by default.
So really hope it will be a possibility in the future.

Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. sharon Masters 7/31/13 11:32 AM
THREE years later and CHROME still hasn't addressed this??? GOOGLE, you can make cars drive themselves, show us moving rivers in the Amazon, find the personal phone number of Brittany Spears, save every PORN picture we ever wanted, tell the government all our browsing daily and yet you genius's cannot give us a simple RIGHT CLICK CHANGE ICON FOR THE FOLDER OPTION???? This is ridiculous- and they wonder why Firefox is still the defer/ go to browser- because it is not *stupid* on basic issues. I guess I expect too much from the best and brightest in the galaxy.

Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. leviwallach 10/15/13 10:09 AM
I don't get it either.  For some things it seems that Google cannot scale.  I find this a lot with little issues with their software.  There are some companies who are incredibly responsive when it comes to customers' requests and suggestions.  Once you get to Google's level, it seems that most of their resources go to either making software using their own internal employees as beta testers or supporting the throngs of average users that don't think of something like customizing bookmark folder icons.  Let's face it, all of us here like to tweak things, this is why we probably mostly use Android over iOS.  However, Chrome has never equaled how customizable Firefox is, and I believe part of that is intentional (for stability and security).  Still, it's little things like this that get to me.  They are obvious UI enhancements and trivial for developers to implement.  There's obviously a need/desire for it in the community, and yet no one from Google can even bother to respond to the pleas, let alone actually offer the enhancement.  Google is great on many fronts, but it's this lack of response to a strongly stated desire from a subset of users that really makes them look like they could care less about their customers and are only out to make a buck by making changes that only the large majority of "average" users would like.  Almost a little like Apple in this regard, gearing everything to that average user rather than actually realizing there are people who want to tweak things, if only on a rather basic level...
Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. leviwallach 10/15/13 10:50 AM

Re: Change icons for bookmark folders on the bookmarks bar. Doreen TT 8/13/15 10:24 AM
Hey everyone!

Choosing custom icons for bookmark folders in the bookmarks bar is not currently possible, however, I think it's a great idea! If you'd like to see this in the next Chrome upgrade, make sure to start a new thread with your feature request and also submit feedback directly in Chrome. 

To submit feedback directly in Chrome:
  1. Click the Chrome menu Chrome menu in the top right corner of the browser.
  2. Select Help.
  3. Select Report an Issue.
  4. Add the details of your feature request.
The Chrome product team looks at this feedback, so the more requests for this feature they receive, the more likely it will be acted upon. 

If you have any other questions or feature requests related to Chrome, be sure to start a new thread. 

Keep the great ideas coming! 

Very best,
Doreen
