Save the bookmark and that’s it! You have successfully added note to Chrome bookmark.

Bookmark Manager extension replaces the default look and feel of Chrome Bookmark manager. It presents a beautiful Bookmarks page where all bookmarks are visible as cards in different colors. You can click on More action icon of any bookmark and use Edit option. After that, a sidebar opens on the right side where you will see a Note section separately for that bookmark and options to edit title and link of the bookmark. Use that section and add note to that specific bookmark.
Using this extension is also very easy. Just install the extension and open Bookmark Manager page. You can:
- Click this link to open Bookmark Manager extension page available on GitHub and then grab the extension zip archive. Use “Clone or download” button (in green color) present on the right side of the page and download the zip archive. After that, you need to extract that zip archive in a folder.
- Open “Chrome:extensions” page and then turn on “Developer mode” button available on the top right corner.
- In Extensions page, use “Load unpacked” button and then import the extension folder that you extracted.
This will install the extension. After that, open Bookmark page of Chrome and you will see a whole new interface where all the bookmark folders and bookmarks in a particular folder are visible. Just use Edit option and you can add note to any bookmark.
Note: Bookmark Manager is the restored and modified version of original Bookmark Manager extension (by Google). We have also covered its detailed review here. The original extension is still there on Chrome Web Store but I guess it is deprecated. Therefore, this version will be helpful.
These are some handy options to add notes to bookmarks in Chrome browser. All options are pretty good. Still, the first built-in option is better to add notes to Chrome bookmarks, as per my opinion. If you don’t want to install some extension especially for this purpose, then first option is good. Otherwise, the rest of the options are also handy.
