Bookmarking is a convenient way to save your favorite websites or webpages for quick access later. On Android devices, bookmarking can be done easily using the built-in browser. In this article, we will guide you through the process of bookmarking on Android step by step.
Step 1: Open the Browser
To begin, open the browser on your Android device. Most devices come with a pre-installed browser such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
Step 2: Navigate to the Website
Once the browser is open, type in the URL of the website you want to bookmark in the address bar and press Enter.
Step 3: Access Bookmarks Menu
After the website loads, tap on the menu icon located in the top-right corner of the browser. This icon usually looks like three vertical dots or lines.
If you are using Google Chrome, you can skip Step 3 and directly proceed to Step 4 as Chrome has a different interface for bookmarks.
Step 4: Add Bookmark
In the menu that appears, select “Add to bookmarks”. This option might also be labeled as “Bookmark this page”.
If you are using Google Chrome, tap on “Star icon” instead of selecting “Add to bookmarks”.
Step 5: Edit Bookmark (Optional)
If you want to customize your bookmark before saving it, tap on “Edit”. Here you can change the name and choose a folder to save it in. You can also add tags for better organization.
Step 6: Save the Bookmark
Once you are satisfied with the bookmark settings, tap on “Save” or “Done” to add the bookmark to your Android device.
If you are using Google Chrome, skip Step 6 as Chrome automatically saves the bookmark as soon as you tap on the Star icon.
To access your bookmarks, open the browser and tap on the menu icon. From the menu, select “Bookmarks” or “Favorites”.
This will open a list of all your saved bookmarks. Simply tap on a bookmark to visit that website instantly.
If you want to organize your bookmarks into folders or delete unwanted bookmarks, follow these steps:
Moving Bookmarks to Folders:
1. Open the browser and go to the bookmarks menu as mentioned earlier.
2. Long-press on a bookmark that you want to move until a context menu appears.
4. Choose an existing folder or create a new one by tapping on “New folder”.
5. Tap on “Move here”.
In Google Chrome, long-press on a bookmark and select “Edit”. From there, you can change the folder by tapping on the folder name under “Folder”.
To delete a bookmark, follow these steps:
1. Open the browser and go to the bookmarks menu.
Long-press on the bookmark you want to delete. Select “Delete” or “Remove”.
