Where are Chrome Bookmarks stored?
First, it’s important to understand where your bookmarks are stored. By default, Chrome stores all of your bookmarks in a file called “Bookmarks” in your “User Data” folder.
To find this folder, open Chrome, and type “chrome://version/” into the address bar. This will open a page that displays information about your Chrome browser, including the location of your “User Data” folder.
In Windows, this folder is usually located at C:\Users\[Your Username]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data.
For user one, the bookmarks are located in Default Folder
In Mac, it’s located at: /Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome.
And in Linux, it’s located at: /.config/google-chrome.
Once you’ve found your “User Data” folder, open it and look for the “Bookmarks” file. This is where all of your Chrome bookmarks are stored.
