Bookmark, Chrome

Bookmark Bar in Chrome

Does your bookmark bar look crazy? I sometimes have so many bookmarks that I doesn’t fit at the top. I also have websites I want to open every day and I don’t want to go looking for them. This post will help you use the bookmark tools built into Chrome to help you organize your life.

Tip 1 – Shorten or Remove Names

Most saved bookmark tabs have an icon and words. If you can quickly recognize the icon, you can remove the words to save space in your bookmark bar.

Right click (or command click) and go to Bookmark Manager.

Click the three dots next to the bookmark you want to edit. Then click the edit button.

Delete the words or shorten the words, depending on what you want to see.

Click save.

The icon takes up much less room on the tool bar.

Tip 2 – Folder for Daily Tabs

I access my Calendars every single day. I try to keep them open, but sometimes you need to restart. Now, my Chrome is set to restore tabs, but what if I want to close them for the weekend and reopen them on Monday? I can create a folder to hold the sites I need to go to daily.

I like to begin by opening the sites I want to place in the folder. You don’t have to do this, you can add them by URL if you want to. I think dragging is easy than copying and pasting the URL.

Next, I will right click in the Bookmark area and add a Folder.

Type in the name of your folder and click save.

Now you can drag each tab into the folder. Click on the tab, then click the website icon or in my case the lock icon and drag it to your folder.

The animation doesn’t show it, but when you click on the folder, the sites you added will be there.

You an always go into Bookmark manager and delete anything you no longer want.

Well, I hope this little organization tip is helpful for you. I like to keep my Bookmark bar orderly because it saves me time.
