  4. Click Bookmarks and then Import bookmarks and settings.
  5. Choose the browser with the settings you want to import.
    • If the application you've used isn't listed, export your bookmarks as an HTML file and import the HTML file.

How bookmarks are imported

If you already had bookmarks in Chrome, the imported bookmarks are added to the "Other bookmarks" folder at the end of the bookmarks bar.
