You need to insert a removable storage device such as a USB flash drive into the old computer, and then launch Google Chrome Browser.

Click the spanner icon in the upper-right corner of the Google Chrome window, and then click “Bookmarks” and “Bookmark Manager” A new browser tab opens, displaying all of your stored bookmarks.

Step 3
Click the “Organize” button in the upper-left corner of the browser tab, and then click “Export Bookmarks to html file.” A new window with the title “Save As” appears.

Step 4
Navigate in the “Save As” window to the removable storage device, and then click the “Save” button. Google Chrome Browser automatically gives the file a name such as “bookmarks_16_12_2011.html.”

Windows Vista

C:/Users/User Name/AppData/Local/Google/Chrome/User Data
