I’ve been using Chrome for a few months now, but I’ve never actually seen the Bookmarks bar, until today. While testing a new java bookmarklet I realized that I needed a bookmarks bar to properly use it. Firefox automatically has the bookmarks bar visible, but in Chrome it is hidden by default. So, let’s quickly review how to add the Google Chrome Bookmarks bar for Windows and Mac.
Enable Bookmarks 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 Bookmarks Bar in Google Chrome for Mac
From Google Chrome, click View > Always Show Bookmarks Bar or SHIFT+COMMAND+B simultaneously.
