Most browsers can export your bookmarks to an HTML file. Some do it natively, while others require an add-on, extension, or a third-party program. Most browsers can also import these HTML files, so you can use this trick to move bookmarks among the browsers you use. In this KnowledgeBase guide, it will show you how to export bookmarks to an HTML file and import bookmarks from an HTML file in Google Chrome and Internet Explorer.
To import or export bookmarks in Chrome, click the Chrome menu icon at the top-right corner of your browser window, and go to Bookmarks > Bookmark manager. You can also quickly open the Bookmark manager by pressing Ctrl+Shift+O.
The Bookmark Manager opens on a new tab. Click the "Organise" button (three dots) in the top right corner and select “Export bookmarks to HTML file”. (If you’re importing from an HTML file you already have, choose “Import bookmarks from HTML File.)
On the Save As dialog box, Chrome will automatically give the HTML file a name containing the current date. Navigate to either your University U:/ drive or Microsoft OneDrive, save this file and change the file name if you want.
To import or export bookmarks in Internet Explorer, click the star-shaped favourites icon.
Click the arrow on the right side of the “Add to favourites” button.
Then, select “Import and Export” from the drop-down menu.
On the first screen of the Import/Export Settings dialog box, select the “Export to a file” option (or select the “Import from a file” option if you’re importing bookmarks from an HTML file) and click “Next”
Whether your exporting or importing bookmarks, check the “Favourites” box and click “Next”.
If you’re exporting bookmarks, select the favourites you want to export—to export all your favourites, select the Favourites folder at the top. (It’s selected by default.) Then, click “Next”
If you’re exporting bookmarks to an HTML file, the Select Bookmark File dialog box displays. Navigate to either your University U:/ drive or Microsoft OneDrive and save this file and change the file name if you want. Click “Save”.
If you’re importing an HTML bookmarks file, select the HTML file on the Select Bookmark File dialog box that displays and click “Open”.
