Is there a way in Windows 7 to retain bookmarks between Chrome sessions without signing in each time. I hate not being in charge of this behavior and being forced to sign in. I have switched from Chrome to 99% Opera browsing.
You bookmarks are saved without having to sign into Chrome. Check the bookmarks bar by pressing Ctrl+Shift+B or the bookmarks organizer by pressing Ctrl+Shift+O
Either you haven't saved them properly, or you're not looking at the bookmarks bar. if you want the bookmarks across multiple Chrome installations then you need sync
