Get Back Old Bookmarks Manager in Chrome


Google has been pushing out many updates in Chrome Web browser. Though, some are good and improving user experience while some of the updates has made Google Chrome more difficult than it was in its previous update. Previously, the option to switch between profiles was easy as it opened a separate page to change log-in profile. But after recent update, instead of making it more easier, the option is now more complicated. Each time you want to switch profile, a temporary windows opens which can go away at any time whenever you click anywhere else.

Anyway, the recent update changed the bookmark manager interface. Now, instead of having a quick navigable list of bookmarked pages, you will see some large boxes with images. Although, you can choose from settings how you want to see list i.e. list or grid. New bookmark manager has changed how old bookmark worked.

Whenever you want to bookmark any webpage, you want to click star icon on right side of address bar. Clicking on star icon adds webpage to all items list and a new folder other bookmarks. If you want to add it to your desired folder then you can choose from drop-down menu but it is little complicated.
