Move your bookmarks easily between computers

It’s a simple problem, but that doesn’t stop it from bedeviling some computer users: What do you do if you buy a new computer and want to easily move all your old bookmarks over to the new one? In this video how-to, we’ll show you two ways to export bookmarks and then upload them into a browser on your new machine.

Using Chrome, I start by going to that browser’s bookmark manager and clicking Organize. I then export my bookmarks to an HTML file, choosing where to save it. From there, using email, file-sharing, or a thumb drive, I can bring my bookmarks over to a new computer.

There’s an even easier way using Google Chrome. Just sign in when you use the browser. That way, whenever you’re signed into Chrome on any machine, your bookmarks will travel with you.
