I have NO idea why Canary stopped working, but I went to open it and nothing happens.  I have a Win 7 machine.  Regular Goggle works fine, but Canary won't open and I want to get my bookmarks off it.  Any suggestions?

 

 

Thanks!

You made me go looking !  I have Chrome installed but rarely use it - I don't like it. Apparently all versions of Chrome come out first as 'Canary' releases which are pre-beta very early versions ripe for finding the bugs in. This article may explain the matter more coherently and you may just have to wait for the next 'canary' version to come along.

Thank you!  Do you know where the history and bookmarks would be stored?  If I can at least retrieve them, it won't matter which version of Chrome I use.

 

Thanks!

No, I don't know but for a guess it is somewhere in your 'Users' folder. But you can back them up to an HTML file which you can then save in any convenient place and import them from the file after a change of version or a re-install.

 

If you click on the 'Settings' button in the top right hand corner, then 'Bookmarks' then 'Manage bookmarks' a new screen opens up - the Bookmark Manager. The right hand panel is headed 'Organise'. Clicking on this gives a drop down menu which includes import from and export to an HTML file. I use this every so often in Firefox because then I know where my bookmark backup is !
