- Select Export bookmarks.
- Select your USB flash drive as the target location, and then click Save. By default, the bookmark name is based on the current date, but you can rename it if you want.Advertisement
- Now, check on the flash drive to see whether the bookmark data has been saved.
- Importing bookmarks can be done in the same manner, but at this point, you need to choose Import bookmarks.
- Select the bookmarks file, and then click Open.
- Now the same bookmarks are available on the new device!
