I have many bookmarks that I'd like to show in the bookmark bar. How to make the bookmark bar of Google Chrome bigger, for example, let it show two rows of bookmark icons? If impossible, is there some extension that can essential help me having a big bookmark bar?
Officially no. There are workarounds though, like grouping bookmarks in folders or using extensions.
Some ideas of extensions: Bookmark Bar Switcher which lets you switch between multiple bookmark bars or Iconized Bookmarks Bar which helps you gain space on the bookmarks bar by adding icons instead of text.
Your best bet is to sort them into folders and name the folders short one word names. This is what I did when I realized that I was running out of space.
Here is example of my Chrome bookmark bar:
I has same problem, I installed https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/bookmark-sidebar/jdbnofccmhefkmjbkkdkfiicjkgofkdh?hl=en for convenient i move my bookmarks (folders) to "other bookmarks" to separate bookmarks and conclude that you can use native other bookmarks, it faster and lighter. But it was very convenient that can change height of bookmarks panel
What I've done to save space is basically the same as what the previous person wrote; i.e. edit the bookmarks so that they're only the icons and not the text (except in a couple cases where the icons were the same [like for multiple instances where the bookmark in question goes to a google sheets document, or a folder].
I decided to look through the Chrome Web Store (to try to find an extension for another question) and I found the following:
- This extension was last edited on Feb. 10, 2019.
- This extension was last edited on March 8, 2015.
I have not actually tested them out, but based on what a few associates of mine have stated, 'Bookmarks Bar Skipper' is the better of the two.
My way of Doing is
1.Edit each bookmark and remove the site's name. Remembering the site's logo is easier than remembering the site's name.
I've bookmarked few of my documents in google drive. Here the problem is even if you remove the name, It'll show document icon. So while editing the bookmark, instead of keeping a name, I add an emoji(Delete name and copy+paste an emoji which is relevant to the content) Plenty of emojis are available so that we can use accordingly. For some document I put alt code like hexagon etc.,
Can anyone guess what is the difference between these two bookmarks. How I made more bookmarks to accommodate the same bookmark?
The idea is very simple. The first one's display resolution is 1440 X 900. In the second one increased the display resolution is 1920 X1080. So, if you increase the display resolution in display settings, more number of bookmarks can be accommodated.
If you prefer dock on the left side and if your OS allows 'auto-hide' feature, then make it auto-hidable. Since our bookmark is only logos, the width occupied by the dock gives extra space for few more bookmarks.
Apart from this, You can add your preferred shortcuts in google chrome home page.
On the top right corner of the chrome window you have google apps icon( 9 dots). All the google apps can be directly accessed from here.
You can add this extension from google chrome extension and add as many shortcuts as you want of your preferred site.
(May be the same kind of more extensions are available I think)
As one of the google home page short cut you can add google bookmark. So, with two clicks, you can reach your site. https://www.google.co.in/bookmarks/
Last but not least, you can add google keep extension as well and organize with different colors and lables.
Hope it is helpful.
I put them in alphabetical folders with sub-folders in those and then dragged the bookmarks into the sub-folders. Drag them by the folder icon next to the address bar, but most of you probably already know how to do that. You can make the sub-folder and then drag it on top of the alphabetical folder.
