Why are my Google Chrome favorites all messed up? (Part 1)

Episode 988 (18:28)

Jeff from Spokane, WA

Jeff is having problems with his favorites in Google Chrome. Leo says that a nice feature of Chrome is that it can sync everything in the browser, from links to themes. First, Jeff should make sure he doesn't have any other bookmark sync programs installed. Leo recommends going into the bookmarks manager on his main computer to clean it up. Then he should sync it again, but wait a little bit before using another computer.

If that doesn't clear it up, then he should export his 'cleaned up' bookmarks to an HTML file for backup. He can then delete the bookmarks on his other computers, and import that exported file into Chrome on all of the other computers that aren't syncing properly.
