Google Chrome and Firefox are certainly the most-used mobile and web browsers for internet surfing across the globe. Bookmarks are a useful tool for users on a daily basis. It might be aggravating to delete them by accident. Here’s how to get a bookmark back if you unintentionally removed it in either Google Chrome or Firefox.
How to recover deleted Google Chrome bookmarks
- Close your Chrome.
- Open File Explorer and Type Following in Address Bar: C:\Users\NAME\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default.
- Rename the Bookmarks file to Bookmarks.old and rename Bookmarks.bak to Bookmarks.
- When you reopen Chrome, you’ll notice your removed bookmarks. You’ll lose whatever bookmarks you’ve made since the last time you started Chrome.
