I'm trying to recover a Windows system from backups and can't seem to find where Chrome saves its bookmarks.

Anybody knows where Chrome saves its bookmarks on Windows?

On Windows 7 and Windows Vista:

C:\Users\{User Account}\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

On Windows XP:

C:\Documents and Settings\{User Account}\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

Go to that folder and you can see a file with a name "Bookmarks".

Note: The AppData folder is hidden by default. Either just type the name in the addressbar or set the explorer to show hidden folders. –  Feroc Jan 9 '12 at 12:33
You don't need to change visibility of hidden files & folders to access AppData, open Run dialog using Win+R and enter %AppData% and go to the location, it will open Roaming directory by default, now press Alt+Up Arrow to go to its parent folder, and there you have the folders Local,LocalLow and Roaming, now can navigate to the Chrome's directory. –  Kush Jan 16 '12 at 8:15
%APPDATA% actually throm me to the followinf location: C:\Users\{User Account}\AppData\Roaming –  NoNameProvided Jun 19 at 3:40
I am using Windows XP and there is no hidden or unhidden path like that. –  begueradj Jul 1 at 8:55

On my PC (Windows Vista) i can find the bookmarks file (and also cache/history/etc.) in this location:

C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
