How can I recover Chrome bookmarks that were accidentally deleted?

Jo-anne P February 22, 2014

Yesterday I was trying to configure some stuff in Chrome, I am on a windows 7 laptop. The next thing I know I am looking at bookmarks from 6 months ago. How can I get my bookmarks back please? I am having a minor breakdown which will quickly escalate to a major if I am unable to recover them. Thanks

    i think chrome should have saved a bookmark backup.
    1) go to
    C:UsersYour NAMEAppDataLocalGoogleChromeUser DataDefault
    2) Open that folder, you should see two bookmark files – Bookmarks and Bookmarks.bak. Bookmarks.bak is the most recent backup, taken when you last opened your browser.
    3)close google chrome, delete Bookmarks and rename Bookmarks.bak to Bookmarks. You can also backup Bookmarks and Bookmarks.bak if any thing goes wrong.
    4)open Chrome

    Google Chrome lets you sync your bookmarks and extensions
