When you first started using Windows 10, it’s likely that you also used the Microsoft Edge browser that is included with it and set as your default browser. Edge is a good browser that’s very fast, but you may be more comfortable using a third-party option like Google Chrome.
But if you created some bookmarks while you were using Edge, you may be looking to import those bookmarks into Chrome. Our guide below will show you how to complete this import by using the import tool that is included with Chrome.
