How do I share an individual Google Chrome Bookmarks folder with someone else?

I have a folder full of articles I wish to send to someone one, without opening them up individually and sending each one.

    Export your Bookmarks as HTML using Chrome's built-in exporter, open the HTML file and remove anything you don't want them to have and tell them to import it. – MonkeyZeus Jan 5 '15 at 15:42
  • Heads up folks, it looks like the share feature in bookmark manager is gone as of the moment. I relied on it pretty regularly, so editing your html file might be the best method for the time being. – user524828 Nov 21 '15 at 23:38

Two options (easiest first):

  1. You can use the new Bookmark Manager extension from Google, which replaces the built in one. You can then go to the folder you want to share (via the extension), and click Share this folder at the top right of the page

  2. You can use the default bookmark manager and export bookmarks to html and manually remove the bookmarks that aren't in the folder you want to share.

    I think google removed 'Share this folder' button in the latest version. – Lukas Ignatavičius Oct 18 '16 at 8:19
  • Hmmm that's annoying :( I'll see if I can find anything new but maybe the manual method is the only way forward atm... – ᔕᖺᘎᕊ Oct 19 '16 at 7:04

    I don't think the Bookmark Manager has the Share this Folder option anymore (at least I could not find it) – Steve Campbell May 4 '17 at 21:03

    The Share option is gone, but at least the Bookmark Manager extension still has the export option (unlike the built in one). So #2 still works – Dijkgraaf Jun 29 '17 at 23:14
  • I could not see the export feature anymore... is it gone? – Arninja Apr 4 '18 at 7:25

It's dead simple to share a folder of Chrome bookmarks. Open Chrome's standard bookmark manager, open the specific folder or sub-folder whose contents you want to share, then in the right-hand pane just copy the icons of the web pages. Then paste into an email (this action will yield a list of URLs, not icons) and send.

  • this does not work if there is a hierarchy of folders and bookmark – kenchew Aug 26 '20 at 2:09
  • although helpful, this isn't really "sharing" in the sense that they can't see the latest. – Brian C Nov 26 '20 at 1:13
