Our look at the world’s most popular browser, Google Chrome, continues today as we explore history, downloads, and bookmarks. You’ll find these options when you click the little 3-dot menu icon on the upper right of the browser.
History will show you recently closed pages. Click on any of the displayed pages to open them.
Click Downloads to see items that you’ve recently downloaded using the Chrome browser.
You can also search for downloaded items.
Now, let’s check out Bookmarks.
You’ll see a menu with several options.
You can choose to bookmark the page you’re on or bookmark all of your open tabs.
You can also bookmark a page by clicking the star icon at the far right of your address bar.
If you want to see your favorite pages displayed at the top of your browser, click Show Bookmarks Bar.
Your bookmarks will be displayed at the top of the browser, just below the address bar.
Click Bookmarks Manager and you’ll be able to organize your bookmarks.

You can click on any bookmark in the right pane and drag it into a folder or to your bookmarks bar.
You can just click and drag bookmarks to arrange them. Or click the arrow next to Organize to reorder your bookmarks or to import or export.
