You don't need to restore the whole image to get your bookmarks. Attach the USB device that has the image you want and double click it. Macrium will ask you what drive letter to give the image and mount it. Explore the image for your Chrome bookmarks. You need to enable hidden files because App Data is a hidden folder.
Browse the image:\Users\<your name>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
There will be a file called Bookmarks. You will need to rename your bookmarks file on your computer's hard drive to Bookmarks.bak or you will overight it. If there is already a Bookmarks.bak in the default folder of your computer's hard drive then rename the bookmarks to something like Bookmarks.bk1
If you do not see Bookmarks in the Default folder you may have a Profile folder under User Data. Look there.
Copy the Bookmarks folder from the mounted image file to your computer's hard drive. After the copy you can detach or eject the virtual drive by right clicking it in computer.

John, I'll begin my baby steps and follow your instructions! This is so new to me. I feel like a kindergarten student. I'll be back.
Thank you, Lisa

John: You're the best ever!!!
Your detailed instructions worked, and I have my "life" back! I learned something new from you today about using my image that I'll treasure. (And I did export a fresh bookmark html. file that will become part of my constant back ups and saved to a flash drive.)
