Exporting bookmarks saved on Opera - how

  • How do I export to another computer bookmarks I saved? By the way, I have two computers, both Windows. And the bookmarks I save on one of them using Opera does not save on the other computer when I am also using Opera. So I have two sets of bookmarks when using the Opera browser, one for each of the two computers I am using Opera with.

  • How do I export to another computer bookmarks I saved?

    You use an extension for it.

  • I f you go into Opera settings/Browser and you will see "Synchronization - Synchronize browsing data with Opera account."

  • I signed in. But I still don't understand which settings to press.

    I got this synchronisation information, but it does not seem to cover the case where I want to export the bookmarks to another computer also using Opera as the browser:

    Please advise.

  • As has been said, you can't do that directly in the current versions of Opera, you will need to find an extension to do it.
    IIRC another way is to temporarily install Google Chrome, which can export bookmarks, copy the "Bookmarks" file from your Opera profile to Chrome's profile, and export them from Chrome.
    If you have Opera synchronisation enabled, you shouldn't need to do this anyway, as your two installations should then keep their bookmarks in sync automatically.

  • I do have Google Chrome also. So without installing an extension. I think I now have this extension capability now (from today). But I'm at a loss to know what is happening next, or what I should do next. When I was doing this sync function added, Opera did not ask me anything about my other browser, Chrome, or ask me anything about sending my Opera bookmarks to Chrome. I don't see how it can automatically copy bookmarks from Opera to Chrome without something else happening.

    Enable sync in one Opera installation and then enable it in the other computer too. That's it, you should have the same bookmarks on both Opera installations.

    You can't send your bookmarks to other browsers using Sync.

  • As I get it, synchronising works like this: you make some synch account, register your needed browsers under it, well, and activate all that. I've no idea about "who's the Boss" and how to do it though. 😄

    Isn't it possible just to find that "bookmarks" file and send it to the other computer??

    (UKthesis, you don't need to do anything with your Google Chrome if you choose to do some synching. You'll only need to use it if you don't (and the simple sending file doesn't work either).)

    You got it wrong. 🙂 There is no sync service that work with different browsers, at least that I know.
