    just copy bookmarks file from Chrome profile to Opera profile folder
    edit: only bookmarks that are in "bookmarks bar" directory will be visible!!
    other bookmarks wont, so rearrange them in Chrome before you copy it

  • thanks for the reply but im not sure how to actually go about doing the aforementioned task. additionally, it seems a little concerning that the option of "bookmarks importer" is grayed out and uclickable..http://i1049.photobucket.com/albums/s386/poopydonkey/oprealol_zps5f59b524.png?t=1394959745

    a clearer explanation of how to go about executing your initial advice would be great - or just tell me a way to activate the bookmark import option. thanks!

    (For Windows XP):
    Navigate to:
    Documents & Settings>"Your Computer Name">Local Settings>Application Data>Google>Chrome>User Data>Default

    Copy the "Bookmarks" file (Right-click on it>Copy).

    Then in the relevent Opera profile folder, right-click>Paste.

  • thanks for the response. Im running windows 8 for what its worth. i followed the advised steps and it did not work.

  • Hi Surfsk869,

    1. Close both the Google Chrome, and the Opera, then press the keyboard shortcut "Windows key+E", to open Windows Explorer, then enter the following in the address bar (and press enter key):
    %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
    
    1. Copy the "Bookmarks" file, and the "Favicons*" files from the Chrome profile folder to the Opera profile directory
      (you can find the path to the Opera profile in: O-Menu->About Opera->Paths->Profile),
    2. Reopen the Opera, and all bookmarks from Chrome should appear on the "Bookmarks bar".
