  1. One difficulty is when Importing, you get the imported Bookmarks File just below the Bookmark Bar, If you want to move the imported File bookmarks up and into the Bookmark Bar, this has to be done individually which is time consuming and clumbsy

  2. I am trying to open bookmark manager in Opera.

    Nothing works.

    I am using a mac laptop.

    Ctrl+Shift+B does absolutely nothing.

    Nothing happens.

    It ignores that instruction. It disappears into the ether, never to be seen again.

    What do I do next?

    1. Hi Don, you need to keypress Option + Cmd + B to invoke the Bookmarks Manager on your Opera for Mac. In case you are looking for the bookmark bar, then Cmd + Shift + B should do the magic.
