Where are Chrome bookmarks located in Windows 10?

Google Chrome is one of the most popular browsers in the world. Google has put in an incredible amount of work in its browser since its launch in September 2008, contributing to the browser being an extremely convenient experience.

Often considered a memory hog, if you look past the few headaches that the browser offers, everything else comes together in an extremely cohesive package. Especially Google services work extremely well with the browser.

Everything you save in the browser, your bookmarks, favourites, themes, extensions, and everything else is linked to your Google account. Exporting and importing bookmarks is only a matter of logging in with your Google account and a few clicks.
