Google Chrome and the open-source Chromium browser save your bookmarks in a file on your computer. You can export your Google Chrome or Chromium bookmarks into a standard HTML file if you're switching Web browsers, moving to a new computer or just backing up your bookmarks. Each Web browser on your computer has its own bookmarks system, but Google Chrome and other popular browsers such as Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox can import the HTML file.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click the wrench icon at the top-right corner of the Google Chrome or Chromium window and click "Bookmark Manager" in the menu.

  2. 2

    Click the "Organize" menu at the top of the Bookmark Manager tab and select "Export Bookmarks."

  3. 3

    Navigate to the folder you want to save the HTML file to in the file browser window that appears.

  4. 4

    Type a name for the exported bookmark file in the file name box and click "Save."

Tips and warnings

  • Import the bookmarks into another Google Chrome or Chromium Web browser with the "Import Bookmarks" option in the Organize menu. Other Web browsers have similar import options in their bookmark or favourites manager windows.
  • View your bookmarks as a Web page by double-clicking the exported HTML file.
