In my bookmarks window I have two to three folders like asp.net, jquery and sql server. How do I export the jquery folder only from Google Chrome?

The Data Liberation Front has a short statement about this: It seems to be possible to export the bookmarks to Google Docs. Perhaps post-processing is easier there. However, I haven't tried that.

In recent versions of Google Chrome it is not possible to export bookmarks to Google Docs. –  Colonel Panic Sep 6 '11 at 12:21

It doesn't seem possible by now. You can export all of your bookmarks then edit with a text editor and delete unwanted. If you temporarily seperate your bookmarks into groups before it's easier to do.

Export all your bookmarks as HTML, import them into a browser with a better bookmark manager (such as Firefox), then you can export a single folder of bookmarks. –  Colonel Panic Sep 6 '11 at 12:22
It is possible now. –  Sathya May 26 '14 at 7:15

@Athimannil I explain it in my answer –  Sathya Sep 28 '14 at 19:37

Move the folder you want to export to the left end of the bookmark bar. Export all bookmarks to file. Open the file in notepad. Find the bookmark that appears last in the folder you are trying to export. Delete everything after that bookmark. Save the file.

Create a new user in Chrome, then drag your desired bookmarks to the bookmarks of the new user (make sure you enabled bookmarks bars being shown for two users).

Next, export bookmarks from the new user. Voilà!

  1. Export your bookmarks as normal
  2. Get the FREE OpenOffice Writer
  3. Open your bookmarks HTML-file in Writer
  4. Delete, move, change as normal. Be aware of end and starting points of HEADINGS etc
  5. File > Save as a name of your choice. OpenOffice understands that you want a HTML-file

worked best for me! –  Jens Jan 5 '14 at 19:28
  1. Open the bookmark manager (bookmarks menu drop down)
  2. Pare down until you open the folder you want to export with the contents shown on the right side window
  3. click once on the first listing, so as to select it. ctrl-A to select all in the right side window, ctrl-C to copy all of the contents.
  4. Open a new file in your text editor*
  5. Paste (ctr-v) links into text document. Save as rich text.
  6. If you would prefer in word, copy from text editor and paste in word.

*This method provides the title of the pages you saved, with the URL link in it. If you ONLY want the URL, instead of opening a text editor at step 4, open a WORD doc. Paste (ctrl-v) there and you will only have a list of URLs.

I found no way but to export Bookmarks into .html file and then open it (using chrome). Then I have to hand-pick all required bookmarks and copy them.

However I found that the following preparation step simplifies the above process:

  1. Enter Bookmark Manager - you will see "Bookmarks bar" with subfolders
  2. In the "Bookmarks bar" create a new sub-folder, say "Export", and position it as the 1st (top-most) sub-folder in the "Bookmarks bar" .

When you export Bookmarks - this subfolder will be the 1st (the top-most) in the exported file.

  1. Withing Bookmark Manager copy required items into the "Export" one.

  2. Presto.

I just used the following work-around:

  • Export all bookmarks to html document.
  • Edit the file (using notepad++ or any other html editor) and delete all unwanted parts.
  • Save it and import it again.

You are done. :) woopey

Open Bookmarks Manager in Chrome by hitting Ctrl+B (or by entering chrome://bookmarks in the Address Bar/Omnibox)

Chrome Bookmark Manager image

Select the desired folder by clicking it, click on Organize and then click on Export Bookmarks to HTML file

Are you sure this still works? I just tried it on Chrome v41 and didn't work –  nixda Dec 23 '14 at 11:41
@nixda I'm using dev, which has the new bookmarks manager - which has export which works only for all the bookmarks, not the one specific to a folder. Can't say about stable version.. –  Sathya Dec 23 '14 at 12:15

Google Chrome is constantly removing these methods to copy the bookmark folder. Easiest solution would be going back to your previous favorite browser - for me it was Firefox.

  1. Delete all the folders you don't want to Export.
  2. Now, Export. It will only export the one folder left.
  3. Once done, Ctrl+z on bookmarks manager, and you'll get back all the deleted bookmark groups back.
  4. Be happy and dance.

  1. Export all bookmarks, and view the source code of the created html file
  2. Scroll down to the folder you want to copy
  3. Copy the source code you want
  4. Open a new notepad txt file and paste the code
  5. Save the file in HTML format

To save your Chrome bookmarks as a .doc file or .pdf file: In Chrome Export your bookmarks as an HTML file. In Firefox, open that HTML file that you just saved. CTRL 'A' to select all then open WORD In a new document CTRL 'V' to paste. At the bottom of the text that you have just pasted is a small box with a clipboard inside and the word (CTRL). Click on the small downward pointing chevron and then select "Keep source formatting (K) Now save as a Word document or a PDF.
