How Do You Transfer Bookmarks Between Google Chrome User Accounts/Profiles? (2018)
Over the years there have been quite a few different ways to move aspects a Google account/Chrome account between devices and accounts. Sadly most of these no longer work, so let’s get started on the current working method for moving Chrome Bookmarks between accounts.
First, make sure you are signed into the account that contains all your bookmarks. Once you are signed in, click the settings icon in the top right-hand corner (three dots) and select Bookmarks > Bookmark Manager.
On the next page you will see a list of all your Bookmarks, here click on the three dots in the top right-hand corner and select Export Bookmarks. This will let you save a HTML file with all your bookmarks saved.
Now that you have a file with all your Bookmark data, sign out of your current Chrome account and sign in with the account you would like to transfer the bookmarks too. When you have signed into the other account, go back to the exact same location, choose Import Bookmarks and upload the HTML file. Chrome will then place a new folder in the bookmarks folder/bookmarks toolbar for you to do with as you please.
Unfortunately, there isn’t an option that will clone your current bookmark list as well as your bookmark layout, so you will have to manually place them back in the correct order on your toolbar. Hopefully, in the future, Google adds an option to export entire Chrome accounts to new profiles and email addresses. If you haven’t already, send them some feedback suggesting the option.
