When I originally installed Chrome on my home PC, I imported all my bookmarks from Firefox. Part of this process, apparently, created a "imported from Firefox" shortcut on my bookmarks bar. Since I already had another shortcut extension to show my bookmarks manager, I brazenly decided to delete the bookmarks bar shortcut. Now all my bookmarks are gone except those on the bookmarks bar! I've tried the suggested method of restoring these deleted bookmarks, but there is no bookmarks.bak file where it should be. Isn't there some way to retrieve these bookmarks via download form my Google account? I don't have any other devices, just my single home PC, so I'm assuming that using Sync isn't an option. Does a Google "cloud" backup exist? I'm really sweating here...


Good news! A kind responder led me to a bookmarks backup I had made and saved in Documents. I had totally forgotten having done this but now a little updating and I'll be back in business...lesson learned!
