No, my first exported save file is a .json extension file. I tried it a different way and got a HTML single file. But this bookmark save process did NOT produce a folder with all of my links. It would be nice if it did because that is "exactly" what I want!!
When I tried to import, I was not able to select a file as you say. Here's what happened:
I went to "customize and control google chrome".
"Import bookmarks and settings"
Option: "from internet explorer" or
I clicked, "import"
It said, "success"
Then, just when I was giddy with happiness, I figured I check the "bookmark manager" just to see if they were there.
None of my bookmarks were there! The bookmarks file is saved on my hd. I now realized that it had not allowed me to select a file....
I did what you said, I went to "settings" and "user" did not show up on this list. I think you have to sign in to use this option, or even for it to SHOW UP! This is NOT the method that I used in the "Export" process...
I do not, did not, want to save my bookmarks ONLINE, and so I did not use this option.
Therefore, the "exported" file that I am trying to restore is saved on my hd, not on the internet, like cloud or something -- or wherever those things are saved, I do not know [online].
I tried your suggestion. I selected the "recent" name with a star in "bookmark manager". Then clicked "orgranize", and this option showed up! However, when I went to check it, I noticed that it was grayed out and I could not select it [I clicked it several times], as it was not an available option to me, even though it showed up on the list!!!
But you know what the strange thing is? When I selected/highlighted a default folder that was already there instead of the "recent" name, when I went to "orgranize", it did not even show up on the list...
Therefore I could not "create" a new folder!
