In case your bookmarks are sorted manually, you can add a separator to divide your bookmarks and folders. To add a new separator, right-click somewhere in the list of bookmarks and select New Separator from the context menu. Then, if necessary, drag it to its correct location.

Bookmark Folders

To create a new folder, either:

  • click on the Folder icon New Folder button on top of the Panel, or
  • right-click in the Panel and select New Folder from the context menu.

To create a new sub-folder, select the parent folder and then either:

  • right-click on the parent folder and select New Folder from the context menu.

Assigning a Speed Dial and Bookmark Bar folder

Speed Dial

To assign a folder to populate your Start Page with Speed Dials, either:

  • select the folder and tick the box for Speed Dial in the folder information section, or
  • right-click on the folder and select Use as Speed Dial from the context menu.

Multiple folders can be displayed on the Speed Dial.

Bookmark bar

To assign a folder to populate your Bookmark Bar, either:

  • select the folder and tick the box for Bookmark Bar in the folder information section, or

Searching bookmarks

Use the Search box on top of the Panel to search for bookmarks using the bookmark’s title, nickname or something in the link or description.

There are two ways to display search results. Either as a flat search, where only the found bookmarks are listed or in a tree-style, where you’ll also see in which folder the bookmark is. To switch between the views:

  1. Right-click on the list of bookmarks;
  2. In the context menu, select Settings;
  3. and then pick either Flat Search or Tree Search.

To make manual browsing through the list of bookmarks easier, you can open and close all bookmark folders at once with just two click – right-click on the list of bookmarks and select either Expand All Folders or Collapse All Folders.

Importing and exporting bookmarks

To import bookmarks from another browser or HTML file, go to the Vivaldi menu > File > Import from Applications or Files.

To export bookmarks as an HTML file, go to the Vivaldi menu > File > Export Bookmarks.
