Keeping your bookmarks organised can be a pain, but there are some great ways to manage them that don't take too much effort.

Organising your Chrome bookmarks is not as hard as it may seem at first. To get over the bookmark chaos, you need to develop a system that can work in any browser and any operating system.

This blog post will take you through three simple, easy steps to make bookmarking less of a hassle! It also includes tips for getting the most out of Google Chrome's bookmark tool. Want to make bookmarking easy? Keep reading!

The problem with managing bookmarks

Bookmarking isn't just about storing links to your favourite websites. It's also about being able to access them easily. It can be challenging to navigate the pages to find what you're looking for when you have too many bookmarks to scroll through or too much clutter.

This problem is made worse when your desktop browser doesn't support folders. If this is the case, Chrome's bookmark tool can make life a lot easier by keeping all of your bookmarks in one place.

There are two ways to do this—either go into Google Chrome settings or use Chrome extensions.

3 Ways to Manage Chrome Bookmarks

1. Use folders to organise your bookmarks

If you have a ton of bookmarks that are all over the place, it can be not easy to find what you are looking for. A great way to organise these is by using folders.

You can find the folder button at the top of Chrome's bookmark manager. Press CTRL + ALT + B to open your Bookmark Manager. Then, simply click "Create new folder" and use this new folder to store your favourite links. You can create different folders for different topics, so you never have to worry about scrolling through pages of bookmarks again.

2. Consolidate your bookmarks

Sometimes, there are just too many bookmarks on your screen for you to scroll through them all without getting frustrated! This is where consolidating comes in handy!

If you have saved almost identical links except for one or two differences, consolidate them into one bookmark that contains all of those links in one spot. If any of the sites ever change or go down, they'll all be affected (rather than only one.)

3. Make use of Google Chrome's features

This may seem like an obvious strategy, but it's worth mentioning because it is not always done!

Adding a bookmark manually

Adding a bookmark manually is as simple as right-clicking on the page and clicking "Bookmark this page." You can also drag and drop the bookmark icon from your browser to easily add it to your toolbar. The best part about adding bookmarks manually is that you can rename them, which will help you find what you're looking for faster!

Adding a bookmark by dragging the URL into the bookmark bar

One of the best methods for adding a bookmark is by dragging the URL into the bookmark bar. This is easy for websites you frequently use, like your email provider. It'll save you time and make it easier to find it in the future!

To do this, open up your bookmarks bar (found on the top of your browser). Then, go to the site you want to add. Click on it to open it in its tab. Next, drag that tab over onto the bookmark bar and release your mouse button. You will then see a notification saying that your bookmark was successfully saved. Congratulations!

Using the Mailist

When organizing bookmarks on Chrome, you can use the Mailist App to organize your bookmarks. It's a Chrome extension that allows you to drag and drop folders onto the app for quick organization. Also, the best thing about Mailist is that it sends you a weekly, personalised newsletter, composed from your bookmarks. Why? To remind you about them, making sure you actually read them!

Pretty neat, right?

Chrome extensions are browser plugins that add features or change how a website behaves when viewed in a web browser, such as by adding new buttons, menus, or functionality to the user's interface.

You can create new folders for your bookmarks and organize them accordingly. You can also add tags to bookmark sites so they are easier to find in the future!

Using folders for organization

The first step in organizing your bookmarks is to create folders. Simply drag and drop the bookmark on top of another folder, and it will automatically create a new folder with the two bookmarks inside.

Once you have more than one folder, you can move them around by dragging and dropping them on top of each other. If you want to reverse the order of the folders, just drag and drop one folder on top of another. This will change their order!

You may notice that when you create new folders, they are always on the far right side of your Google Chrome browser window. You can easily place these new folders where you want them by dragging and dropping them to the desired location on your screen.
