I’ve been using Chrome for a few months now, but I’ve never actually seen the Favorites bar, until today. While testing a new java bookmarklet I realized that I needed a favorites bar to properly use it. Firefox automatically has the favorites bar visible, but in Chrome it is hidden by default. So, let’s quickly review how to add the Google Chrome Booksmarks Bar for Windows and Mac.
Enable Favorites Bar in Google Chrome for Windows
In Google Chrome, Click the Lines (settings) button and then Select Bookmarks > Show bookmarks bar or press CTRL+SHIFT+B) simultaneously
Now the Chrome favorites bar should be completely visible just beneath the Address bar and menu buttons. If at any time you want to get rid of the Favorites bar just repeat Step 1 above.
Enable Favorites Bar in Google Chrome for Mac
From Google Chrome, Click View, Always Show Bookmarks Bar or SHIFT+COMMAND+B simultaneously.
