In Chrome, the bookmarks bar is located at the top of your browser page and right below the address bar. It is like a quick access menu for all of your favorite sites. You can either hide or show it. You can also customize it by only showing the page icons so that you can save more space.
Now, what if you don’t like to see the bookmarks bar on your browser? In that case, you can still access the sites that you’ve placed on it by turning it into a popup menu. Just read the steps listed below to learn how.
