I heavily use Speed Dial Chrome extension. I have configured it with url shortcuts and custom icons on my Windows 7 Ultimate desktop.

How can I copy these settings from my desktop to my Windows 7 Ultimate laptop?

  • Both Chrome browsers sync with the same account.

  • I tried copying all data from my desktop's C:\Users\neo\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions\dgpdioedihjhncjafcpgbbjdpbbkikmi\2.1_0 to the corresponding laptop folder, but still no luck.

Yes! I did it. It's possible.

Copy the following file from your source chrome installation to the corresponding destination installation and overwrite.

C:\Users\<<user name>>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Local Storage\chrome-extension_dgpdioedihjhncjafcpgbbjdpbbkikmi_0.localstorage

It is nothing but the local SQLite database file Speed Dial uses to store dial information. If more interested, you can use Mike's T SQLite Database App to open this file and dig into the key values pairs of various dial parameters.

Looking at the last line of the answer here,

Exporting Speed Dial settings from within Firefox into Chrome Speed dial

it says

In Chrome going to Extension >> Speed Dial Options it only allows you to make cosmetic changes to the start page (spacing, theme, etc).

So currently it doesn't look possible.

I just successfully accomplished this. The file is a database:

C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\databases\chrome-extension_jpfpebmajhhopeonhlcgidhclcccjcik_0

File Name: 4

Just overwrite the old file onto the new installation and it should work immediately. The import settings function in Speed Dial 2 failed to work properly and this was a successful workaround.
