I have recently synced all my bookmarks from my Chrome in my personal laptop to Chrome at work. Now every time I add new bookmarks or edits them at work I want to be able to see them on my laptop at home. I can't seem to find it on Advanced Sync Settings on Chrome's Settings. Any suggestions?

Or you can go for a free application, Xmarks. By paying a fee, it is available on mobile devices as well, while the free version works on any browser and any operating system.

There is an option in Advanced Sync Settings. It's called Bookmarks in the last row.

If you want, just choose Sync Everything, and it will be synced.

You have 2 Ways to force the sync:

  1. Disable Sync and then Sync again.

  2. Add a bookmark and delete it - it will force the Sync

Yes, I tried that as well and it doesn't seem to sync the current version of my bookmarks at home. – A_Pointar Sep 23 '13 at 14:55

If there is no back and forth syncing without losing any bookmarks or duplicates, I guess this will be the solution. Since I make changes in both places and I was just curious if there was a way to keep both sides up to date. Thanks! – A_Pointar Sep 23 '13 at 15:29

Following up to what @BestAmy said, this should happen automatically if you are logged into Chrome with your google account on both machines.

If that's the case and the sync isn't happening you could perform some trouble shooting.

Type this into chrome:


If you see that bookmark synching is disabled then, in Advanced Sync settings, you can switch synch everything to choose what to sync and then uncheck bookmarks , save , and then re-check bookmarks.

If you're running on Arch / Debian, or are running a development / testing version of Chrome by now you should know that you can manually delete everything that has ever synced from Google's server over at One can then force sync Google bookmarks again. This will take hours though.

You are looking in the wrong place maybe i found that they were not under bookmarks but under Starred Items in Chrome on mobile. I thought they were not synced but they were in a diffrent local.
