Find out more about the different ways to access and add new Bookmarks in the Vivaldi browser.
In Vivaldi you can access and manage your bookmarks from multiple locations in the browser:
- From the Bookmark Bar;
- From the Bookmark Panel;
- From the Bookmark Menu;
- From the Bookmark Manager;
- From the Address Bar via auto-completion;
- From the Speed Dials on Start Page;
- From Quick Commands via auto-completion and nicknames.
Adding new bookmarks
- Click the Add bookmark button on the right side of the Address Field (see video);
- Use the Ctrl+D / ⌘ D Keyboard Shortcut;
- Click on Add Active Tab in the Bookmark Menu;
- Right click on the web page and select Bookmark Page from the context menu;
- Drag the link (starting from the padlock/globe icon) to the destination folder in the Bookmark Panel or Bookmark Bar;
- Type “Create Bookmark” in Quick Commands;
- Add one manually in the Bookmark Panel or Bookmark Manager;
- Create a Mouse Gesture for adding the Active Tabs to Bookmarks.
Then add the URL, a title, a description and a nickname. (Only the URL is mandatory.)
Importing and exporting bookmarks
To import bookmarks, click on the Vivaldi menu > File > Import Bookmarks and Settings and select, where you want to import the bookmarks from. Alternatively, click on the Import button located near the top right corner in the Bookmark Manager.
Bookmarks can be imported from another browser you have installed on the same computer or from a Bookmarks HTML file.
When the bookmarks have been imported, you can find them all in a new folder after all other bookmark folders, just above the deleted bookmarks.
To export bookmarks from Vivaldi, click on the Vivaldi menu > File > Export Bookmarks. Bookmarks will be saved as an HTML file.
To keep your bookmarks in sync across multiple Vivaldi browsers on different devices, use Vivaldi’s Sync feature.
If your other computer uses any chromium-based browser, not just Vivaldi, necessary files can be copied across manually from the file manager.
To do that:
- Open vivaldi://about.
- Make a note of the directory listed under Profile Path.
- Open a system window (Finder or Explorer).
- Search for Vivaldi folder following the path you noted above.
- Copy across bookmarks, history, tabs, etc (see image below).
- If you want to copy your files to a non Vivaldi browser, exclude Notes and Preferences files.
