Save saved link in Google Drive as Bookmarks?


How to save link saved to Google Drive as Bookmarks?

To save a link to google drive from browser open a page then 3dots then share then save to google drive.

It is saved as link inside a txt file.


Are you asking a question - or simply telling us about a discovery you’ve made ?


Google Drive does not handle “bookmark” files. So no, you can’t do that.


i am asking Question


Some script can automate?


There are three ways you can do that.

  1. Easy: Open, login into your account and save/import/export your bookmarks.
  2. Moderate: Open browser, export bookmarks in a HTML file, drag it in Google Drive. Chrome has Ctrl+Shift+O and Firefox has Ctrl+Shift+B shortcut to open bookmarks.
  3. Difficult: Make your own HTML file with those bookmarks and save it in Google Drive. For example, use ordered list tag.
    <li><a href="https://your.bookmarks">My Bookmarks</a></li>

For script, I’ll choose sed and awk.


@Biswa No…
I have saved links to google drive from phone.and I want to covert them into bookmark on my desktop.


How did you save bookmarks in Google drive from phone? Did you export them in HTML file?


Like this as in post 1…


we do not understand what you are asking.


I have many links in Google drive and i want to covert them into bookmarks.


If they are not clickable html in drive, then you would need to copy them to clipboard, paste into browser then save to bookmark. Or perhaps a text editor could convert links in text form to html? I’m talking on Android here.

Personally, I use a clipboard manager app that I save tons on links to. And I can import/export the whole file to drive even. Especially if a hard reset was needed, or new phone set up. Clipboardr is what I use. Spelling is correct. It free, does not need it’s own internet permission, mist private one around with excellent features.


This ?


That’s one example, but here’s the one I use. It might be older, but still works on my HTC m9 running Android 7.0.

It might be that it’s not generally available in playstore anymore, but shows up for me in my installed apps. The one you picked is a good app, I’ve looked at it myself more than once.

Personally, I would look for an app without ads, or internet connection required. There are tons of apps in this category. Even a paid app without ads is preferable.
