How to Recover Accidentally Deleted Bookmarks in Chrome

To recover accidentally deleted bookmarks in Chrome, follow these steps:

  1. Open Google Chrome on your computer.
  2. Click on the three-dot menu icon in the top-right corner of the screen.
  3. From the drop-down menu, select “Bookmarks” and then “Bookmark Manager.”
  4. In the Bookmark Manager, click on “Organize” and select “Undo” or use the keyboard shortcut “Ctrl + Z” to undo the deletion of the bookmark.
  5. Alternatively, you can click on the three-dot menu icon next to the folder where the deleted bookmark was saved and select “Restore” to recover the deleted bookmark.

If you have already closed Google Chrome after deleting the bookmarks, you can still recover them from the backup folder. Here’s how:

  1. Open Windows Explorer and type “%LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default” (without quotes) in the address bar.
  2. Look for a folder named “Bookmarks.bak” and rename it to “Bookmarks” (without quotes).
  3. Open Google Chrome and check if the deleted bookmarks are back.

Note that this method will only work if you have not closed Chrome since deleting the bookmarks. If you have closed Chrome, the backup file may have been overwritten, and you may not be able to recover the deleted bookmarks using this method.
