How to manage / clean-up bookmarks in Google Chrome for you as well as for your students.

 If at times you feel as though your bookmarks in Google Chrome are a little out of control, you are not alone. However, it is not as bad as you may think and it will not take you too long to make it more manageable.

A few quick pointers;

  • Press ctrl+shift+b to show your bookmarks bar
  • To quickly bookmark a site select ctrl+d
    • A "better / more effective" way it to select the link and drag down into the bar.
    • You can then right click on that bookmark and select edit to rename (or remove the name) to just leave the favicon (image).
Now, to quickly see all your bookmarks you can select the three dots at the top right and then choose Bookmark Manager (or select ctrl+shift+O). You will now see all your bookmarks. If you have a site (such as ESPN in my example) just type in ESPN and all the bookmarks will come up. If you have a lot of them, choose the first one and then scroll down select shift and choose the last one and delete. Boom - all those extra bookmarks are gone.

Embedded below is a1 minute and 44 second YouTube tutorial.

Take care,
