Google Chrome: Organize Your Bookmarks

Tidying up can feel awfully good. We all know what to do when it comes to cleaning a desk, countertop, or bookshelf, but when it comes to digital cleaning it can be hard to know where to start. One great place to begin is with your bookmarks in Google Chrome. So grab the nearest feather duster and follow these steps!

First, every student and staff member in the Edmonds School District should have the 'Edmonds Bookmarks' folder. This gives quick access to some commonly used websites (see below).

If you don't see the 'Edmonds Bookmarks' folder, right-click on the gray 'Bookmarks bar' and select 'Show Edmonds Bookmarks'.
As you can see, it's great to have bookmarks organized in folders. Here's how you can organize the rest of your bookmarks.

1. Right-click on the bookmarks bar and select 'Add folder...'
2. Name the folder something that makes sense to you. Could be 'Instructional Resources' or 'Edu Blogs' or 'Professional Reading' (or anything else) and then click 'Save'.

3. Your folder will now show on your Bookmarks bar.

4. If you have unfoldered (I just made up a word :-) bookmarks in your Bookmarks bar, you can click, drag and drop them into your new folder. Otherwise, you'll want to click the three-dot menu near the top right, hover over 'Bookmarks' and select 'Bookmark manager...'

5. Here, you'll see all your bookmarks. You can click, drag and drop all your bookmarks into proper folders. Also, if you no longer need bookmarks, you can click the three-dot menu to the right of the bookmark and click 'Delete'.

6. Now your bookmarks will be neat and tidy!
