Default How to get more Bookmarks on your Browser

There are only so many bookmarks that can be installed on a browser before you need to click on a arrow, or a drop down link, to see the others. One way to delay this is to click on a bookmark and select 'edit', and then reduce its description. This will free up space on the browser so that more bookmarks can be shown.

Default Re: How to get more Bookmarks on your Browser

The ultimate variation of grouping /packing Bookmarks is to Make up a Themed Folder Drag and Drop the related Links into that folder Then title it with a shorthand title such as BooMan.(from Bookmark Managers) Might squash 25 to 30 items on to the Toolbar?
On my list I even have Bookmark Manager which is a Chrome Apps Extension (contents over 500 links) Icon is a "Gold Star"
Total of my personal Bookmark "empire" including those archived to Custom folders is in the Region of over 3000 items and I do "Sync" if possible (to other Chrome coded browsers such as Yandex.browser) Not sure if all of these are accessible on the Android App of Chrome?
TIP Do Disable Sync (for URLs) after doing this task and Beware of Duplication or Greater . Can mean a lot of deleting afterwards (Newbies error) >I use this to populate New browsers But swerve those that are Preloaded with Sponsored Links = Possible Spam

I also have most of my Email accounts arranged in this way too with Custom Mailbox folders. GMail and Yahoo Mail are easy to work with on this advanced feature using their Smart Mail filter links.Have to "tell" them what is Priority and which way to route the Post Usually Bouncing it if Spam or sending it to the Custom folder on the other email account(s)

Using just the tip in my posting, and deleting one bookmark, I have managed to free up almost half of the space used for bookmarks.

Interesting and a useful tip, but I suppose the time would come eventually when no more space could be freed up!

I quite often delete all the name and then it just shows the favicon instead, ideal for BBC, YouTube, WhatsApp, SMS etc etc
