Can't import bookmarks from Chrome
Just installed Vivaldi - using Windows 7 Pro OS. Tried to import bookmarks from Chrome but keep getting message saying must close all Chrome windows first. I have done this - but still continue getting the same message, therefore no import happens. How can I fix this? Without importing bookmarks from Chrome, Vivaldi is useless to me. Thanks
Are you sure that there is no process having fun in task manager?
@muratservan Yes I checked that also. And I even restarted the computer and tried again before opening Chrome at all. A mystery.
@djgreen146, hi, export bookmarks as html in Chrome and import the file in Vivaldi.
This should work in all circumstances.
If nothing works you can just copy the bookmarks file from the chrome profile to the vivaldi's one. (They're both blink browsers based on Chromium)
The profile is usually placed under C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local
(AppData is a hidden folder)
Before you do that, you want to move all of Chrome's bookmarks onto the bookmarks bar. Otherwise parts of them will be in a database structure that Vivaldi can't reveal to the user.
Thanks for all replies and help. Much appreciated.
I have the latest 1.6x Vivaldi. I've saved my Chrome bookmarks
to an html file available on dropbox which is accessible from Vivaldi. How exactly do I import the HTML file so that it will install my bookmarks?
@robertebrown - Vivaldimenu/file/import bookmarks and settings/bookmark HTML file; browse to the appropriate file.
