I have adopted Google Chrome as my browser of choice recently. After using it a few weeks, I noticed that my bookmark bar along the top of the screen had disappeared. It would only reappear on certain web sites such as the Home page. I guess I must have hit something accidentally to make it do this.
Luckily, it was a simple solution to bring the bookmark bar back. Just use these keystroke combinations:
- Windows and Linux: Hold down the CTRL and Shift keys while pressing B, to make the bar reappear.
- Mac : Hold down the Command and Shift keys while pressing B.
The bookmark toolbar should now stay in place. You can use the same keystrokes (which you may accidentally hit from time to time) to toggle it back and forth and remove the bar if you’d like to browse the web in a bigger window.
If the Chrome bookmark bar keeps disappearing, check a setting using these steps:
- Select the “Menu” button in the upper-right corner, then choose “Settings“.
- In the “Appearance” section, check the “Always show the bookmarks bar” option.
