The bookmarks bar contains all your bookmarks and bookmark folders created in Google Chrome. You can dock the bar directly underneath the address bar at the top of the browser window for easy access to your favorite sites.

Dock the bookmarks bar

  1. Click the Chrome menu snp_9721c573e41777fba43e1498ad084e3b160c_2696434_en_v2 on the browser toolbar.
  2. Select Bookmarks.
  3. Select Always show bookmarks bar.
You can also use the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+Shift+B (Windows and Chrome OS) and Command-Shift-B (Mac) to toggle the bar on and off.

Hide or undock the bookmarks bar

Right-click (or control-click on a Mac) the bookmarks bar and deselect Always show bookmarks bar. When the bookmarks bar is undocked, you can always find it at the top of the New Tab page.

Google Chrome keeps changing the size of my pages, so I had to uninstall it and reinstall it. I thought I would be able to put my bookmarks bar back by just putting the addresses in and clicking the star to create a bookmark, but it won't work. I just keep making more tabs instead of a bar.

Chromes bookmarks come on two forms. Main bookmarks are in the upper panel. When the star is clicked a pop up box should appear prompting you to enter the folder which you would like the tab. If this isn't happening you should contact Google as chrome is a work in progress and you may be experiencing a glitch.
Google's help requires users to post in their help forum: http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Chrome?hl=en
Something you can try (not a fix but might work until you find the problem) is to create your bookmarks in another browser and importing them into chrome: http://www.google.com/support/chrome/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=96816
I know I'm not directly helping you but I hope this can at least get your search headed in the right direction.
Good Luck.

Hi - My AVG scanner said that google chrome is corrupted - I would like to keep my bookmarks - so how can I go about repair - Right now it won't do much

If you can open Google Chrome you can go to the bookmarks and drag those to a new folder or your desktop. This will create a icon and when you click on it, it will open your favorites.
  1. Click the wrench icon chrome_toolsmenu.gif on the browser toolbar. Mac users: If you don't see the wrench icon, go to the menu bar at the top of your screen and clickBookmarks.
  2. Select Bookmark manager.
  3. Drag the favorites into new folder or desktop.

Add RSS to Chrome

I love reading peoples comments. The first discusses how to bookmark a page even though the initial question was clearly how to add an RSS feed. This is because the first person always rushes to respond without reading.
The second user actually gives a solution, but should have mentioned that at that time simply Chrome does not support RSS feed reader but through URL hacking it could be accomplished their the users solution.
Then of course the third response who always add I dont know anything about what you want, but I know other browser that does. Even though the original poster already mentioned he knew how to do it in Firefox, signifying he has another browser (better than Opera) that supports it but that he simply wanted to know how to do it in Chrome specifically.
People please read questions and only respond if you know the answer.
