Import Bookmarks from Your Desktop to Your Windows Laptop

Bookmarks allow you to jump to your desired web page instantaneously without going through several links.

If you use both desktop computer and a laptop regularly, and if you have bookmarked some web pages on your desktop computer’s web browser, you may also want the bookmarks on your laptop’s browser as well.

Fortunately you can import your bookmarks from your desktop computer to your Windows laptop (and vice versa) with just a few simple steps.

Here is how:

    ■Log on to your Windows PC.
    ■Connect a USB flash drive to your computer.
    ■Open your favorite web browser. (E.g. Mozilla Firefox in this demonstration.)
    ■Click the Bookmarks icon (icon with a Star) from the menu bar at the top.
    ■From the available list, click Show all Bookmarks.

    ■On the Library window, click the Import and Backup drop-down list from the top.
    ■Click Export Bookmarks to HTML from the available options.

    Note: Ensure that you have already connected your USB flash drive to your PC, and the drive is accessible.
    ■Once the Export Bookmarks File box opens up, click to select the connected USB flash drive as the destination location.
    ■Click Save to save your bookmarks to the portable drive.

    ■Remove the portable drive from the desktop computer and connect it to target laptop PC where you want to import the bookmarks.
    ■Once this is done, follow the steps from 2 to 6, and from the displayed options, click Import Bookmarks from HTML when on step 6.

    ■Once done, from the opened box, locate and click to choose the USB Flash Drive and select the target file that contains the information of your saved bookmarks.
    ■Finally, hit Open to import the bookmarks to the target laptop.
