Add, Edit, and Manage Bookmarks in Chrome on the Computer

Do you want to create and manage bookmarks in the Chrome app? Learn how to organize bookmarks in our guide.

The bookmarks are a great way to remember the pages we want to revisit. Google Chrome offers a similar feature where you can bookmark the site links and store them categorically for frequent revisiting.

Alternatively, you can also use the reader’s list, which helps add the links and check them off once you finish reading them.

In this guide, we have shared the steps to save and manage the bookmarks in the Google Chrome app.
