How to Bookmark in Chrome Android and Access/Delete them?

Bookmarks are one of the most essential features provided by Google Chrome whereby you can bookmark any essential page or site so that you can resume from the same place. You can simply add the bookmarks by opening the site and clicking on the three dots in the corner and tapping on the star icon. This will simply add the page in bookmarks. When you want to delete or edit it, go to the three dots and open the bookmarks option and make the desired changes.

Earlier, we used to have bookmarks to keep track of the page we were reading in our favorite book. It ensured that the next time we open the book, we don’t have to start searching again from square one. The same has been now followed in browsers also.

Similarly, Google Chrome and all other browsers have this feature of bookmarking or adding to the favorites list. This helps to keep the website link handy and easily accessible.

Especially at workspace when we work on a particular project or tool that we use very often, we have to visit the page again and again. Hence, bookmarking that page link makes it easy to follow the path.

The other day my mother was reading an article that she needed for research later. Since she was unaware of the mobile bookmarks feature on chrome, she had to search for the URL again and again. When I saw her struggling with the same, I decided to help her with mobile bookmarks.

    Hello.
    I have a Bookmark problem since this morning. Samsung A20e, Chrome browser, Android 10.
    There were 8 Bookmarks under the Search Bar, Now there are only 6 and there is more space between them. I tried a lot but couldn’t find the solution to get all 8 of them back. Is this something about Chrome or is some glitch in my cellphone?
    Thanks in advance πŸ™‚

      Hello Borislav, looks like a browser issue. You can try clearing the data from chrome and re-login with the same Google account.

      By any chance did you check on your computer? If the issue persists on the chrome computer as well?

  2. Borislav Kosijer

    Hello, i’m not using Chrome on my computer, only on cellphone. Tried it now, cleared it all, re-logged in Google Account again but it doesn’t show a single bookmark on the Chrome anymore. When i tap three dots there is “Bookmarks” but i can’t get them on the Home screen again…? It’s black background, white Google letters and a search bar but under it there is nothing…
    Thank you for your help, i’ll try more, maybe i find something, somehow… πŸ™‚

      Hello Borislav, the icons below the search bar are known as Quick Links and they’re dynamic in nature. Most visited sites on our browser are added as quick links that we cannot control. We can just remove the links. Maybe the sites that you’re no longer visiting have been automatically removed.

      Yes, I agree with the fact that Google should give the option to add links but currently, it’s not supported. The only way using the chrome bookmarks to access favorite sites.

        Hello.
        Sorry for being late, had some jobs to do…
        I managed to “repair” it by (somehow) uninstalling Chrome and reinstalling it again. They began to show up and the ones i use most came on the first Left position while the least used are in second Row on the Right. (can’t send you a screenshot) πŸ™‚
        There is something else that bothers me for a Year or so…
        The Websites i use have my Username/Password saved.
        Earlier, when i wanted to login, when i opened the Site it was already entered in the Fields, needed only to tap “Log in”, now it opens empty, have to tap on the Username Field, then it opens a window on the bottom and the button “Continue”, after tapping this it fills those Fields and then you can tap on “Log in”. Do you know is there a way to avoid this procedure?
        And sorry for bothering you πŸ™‚
        Thanks in advance, wish you all the best,
        Borislav

          Hello Borislav, glad that you were able to resolve the quick icons links.

          Speaking about the username/passwords: some high-security sites do restrict storing the username and passwords within browsers, like banking sites, etc. In such cases, we have no other option than manually entering the credentials.

          Since you mentioned that you’re able to login earlier and unable to do now without manually entering the Username. There are chances that Google Password Manager does not have your ‘Username’ stored (just the password is stored). You can verify this by visiting the Chrome Passwords tab within the Chrome Android Browser.

          You may not be able to edit the Username field within the Chrome Android browser, but it will take you to passwords.google.com where you can edit the credentials and enter the missing field.

          Let me know if this helps. Cheers!

            Hello Advit. First, i’m sorry for being so late, i’ve been sick, backbone, gums… for a 5 – 6 days, today is a little better and i tried what you suggested.
            Is there a way i can send you a screenshots? i took them all…
            Anyway, i went to Passwords, then Password manager but there is already saved both, username and password. But when i open my websites, it still offers both of the Fields empty, have to tap on the username Field, then it opens password manager with username and password, then have to tap “Continue”, then it fills both fields and then i can tap “Login”. Earlier, the fields were already filled, only needed to tap on Login.
            Thank You for your time and efforts to help me, wish you all the best πŸ™‚
            Cheers

          This does not work in the Samsung Galaxy S21 5G. When you click on the star, it gives you a screen to edit the bookmark you want to create. But it gives you no way to save it. When you go out of that screen, the bookmark is lost. It does not appear in Chrome’s bookmarks.

          Hello. The star icon on chrome browser, which is used to bookmark a page is missing now. After recent update of Android. any way how to bookmark now something?

          1. Editor

            Hi Lukas, I can still see the Star icon for bookmarking. Can you please share which Browser version you are currently using?

        6. Is there a way of setting Android Chrome to default to the Mobile Bookmarks folder? Many times a day I go to bookmarks and it opens the Bookmarks folder, which only contains the Mobile Bookmarks folder. Kind of annoying!

          1. Editor

            Unfortunately, we can’t change the default layout. It’s something the way Chrome for Android is built.

            1. That’s a drag. Thanks for letting me know.
