Sync Chrome Browser Favorites, Extensions, Themes, History Between Multiple Computers

Umair Shaikh | Thursday, June 06, 2013 | |

Those people who use multiple computers for browsing (for example Home and Office PC), they find it difficult to open those websites which they marked as favorites in any other computer. Of course you can't remember the complete address of each and every website you visit, but if there is a solution which can simply synchronize your browser's favorites with just any other PC, then it will make your life much easier.

In this article we will see how you can achieve this goal with the help of Google Chrome. If you use Google Chrome for your Internet Browsing, (that's what I recommend to everyone for obvious reasons), then following below steps will not only syncs your Bookmarks / Favorites between multiple PCs, but also Themes, Extension, Google Apps and many other things. (In order to enable Sync option in Firefox Browser, Read : Sync Firefox Browser Favorties, Add-ons, History etc. Between Multiple Computers)

All what you have to do is to Sign in to Chrome with your Google ID and then the browser will save all of your browser settings, bookmarks, extensions etc. on the Internet. Now, if you want all those things in any other PC, what you have to do is to Sign in to Chrome with the same Google ID (which you used before) and then it will automatically download all of your previously saved items in to that Chrome browser as well. After doing this, using Chrome browser whenever you mark any website as your favorite or install any extension in any PC, it will automatically be available in all of your PCs.

How To Sync Bookmarks Between Multiple Computers Using Chrome

1. Click the Menu icon at the Top Right of Google Chrome browser and select Sign in to Chrome.

Note: Alternatively, you can also select Settings from the drop down menu and click Sign in to Chrome button.

2. It will open a new Tab in the browser with the Google Sign-in page. Enter the Google Account details where you want to save all of your browser settings, favorites, extensions etc. and then click Sign In button.

Note: Don't forget to enable the option of Choose what to sync. By enabling this option, you can then select what items you want to save it on Internet (on your Google account)

3. It will then bring an Advanced sync settings box (only if you enabled Choose what to sync option as told in previous step). At this box you can select what items you want to save it on the Internet and want to sync with other PCs.

Note: It's up to you to decide what you want to sync with other PCs. Whatever options you will select at the Advanced sync settings box, all of those items will be available in each Chrome browser which you will use. For example, you installed a browser extension at your office Chrome browser, and if you want it to be available in your home PC as well, then simply leave the Extension option selected so that all of your extensions will be available to you on both of the PCs automatically.

4. After selecting the items at the Advance sync settings box, click OK and you are done (at one pc).

5. It will immediately save all of your browser's history, favorites, extensions etc. (based on your selection) on the Internet. Now, in order to have all of the selected items on any other PC, simply open the Chrome on the other PC and follow the steps exactly as explained above.
6. After a successful synchronization you will see that all of your saved items will be available to you in the other Chrome browser as well.

Note: Once the synchronization is finished, if you save a new bookmark in any Chrome browser, the synchronization will happen automatically and that item will be available to you on all those Chrome browsers where you are signed in with your Google ID.

Last Words

This is highly useful option for those who use Chrome at office and home as well. Once you enable Synchronization option in your Office PC, whatever you do in that Chrome browser, it will immediately be avaibale to you in your Home Chrome browser as well. This is extremely easy way to get all of your bookmarks, extensions, themes, Google apps etc on any computer connected to the Internet.

  8. benzoyl peroxide, that was causing all of the staining.
    Blackheads are not caused by dirt; rather there is a bacteria that normally lives
    on the skin and thrives on the sebum produced
    by oil glands. For men, shaving could be a problem because
    one can further harm the skin: a bit more attention and the right choice of the razor should eliminate or
    at least minimize the risks.
