How to Manage Bookmarks in Google Chrome


Google Chrome makes it incredibly easy to manage bookmarks. If you are unfamiliar with bookmarks they are basically icons that appear below the browser address bar that act as convenient shortcut links to websites you specify. You can also create folders in the same area to organize a series of bookmarks in case you want to categorize and consolidate them. The image below shows how bookmark icons typically appear. This is called the Bookmarks Bar.
