Bookmark and Share

chromeGoogle Chrome is rather minimalist with its bare-bone toolbar without almost any button. However, there is a button most of users would like to add on Chrome toolbar. I am talking about the Bookmark button which shows you all your saved websites and blogs. Let’s see how to add it on Chrome…easily!

  1. Right-click the Google Chrome shortcut on your desktop and click Propierties.
  2. In the Target field, add a space and –bookmark-menu right after chrome.exe. The result should look like this: C:\Users\YourName\AppData\ Local\Google\ Chrome\ Application\ chrome.exe –bookmark-menu.
  3. Click OK.
  4. Ta-da!

    hi,

    This does not work anymore apparantly, in chrome 8 update ( just got it today). I like chrome, but honestly, the fact that there is No bookmark menu, nor even a ‘other bookmarks’ out of the box after install, and no way easily apparant way to ‘enable’ it, is a real show stopper, and considering this is from Google, I remain extremely unimpressed, and wonder who it was that had their hands tired behind their backs while coding this unintuitive mess.

    While googling a bit, to make sure I wasn’t missing something obvious, I ‘stumbled’ upon fact that apparantly, you dont get easy options to ‘enable’ them under the main options link, but instead are presented with them when you click on new tab. I normally dont notice such things, because when I click on ‘new tab’ I’m not looking around for ‘new options’, as all I want to do is search for something , or paste a URL, so to put bookmarks menu there was a really bad idea, and it needs to go ‘back’ where most normal people would find it, in ‘options
    :)..Imagine that.

    I like that chrome is lean, but come on peeps, too lean and it goes > unintuitive.

    Worst of all atm, is that your ideology of ‘lean’, has progresed to unuseable, in that bookmarks are not automaticallly filtered to be alphabetized, and there is no ‘option’ to enable that. I mean come on, this is the 21st century google, get your collective heads out of ‘lean’, and at least give normal users ‘options’ ( hint hint) to enable frequent used things, or your browser will be denegrated into oblivion.

    I prefer lean, but come on get real 😉 ( real features please )

    cheers

    thx
