Google-chrome – How to create a root level folder in Chrome bookmarks

bookmarksgoogle-chrome

I'm getting mad with the bookmark manager in Google Chrome. I understand that I can create folders, but for some reason it only works for me that it creates a subfolder of the current selected root folder.

I have 2 folder standard:

  • Bookmark bar
  • Other bookmarks

One of them is always selected, I cannot unselect them when creating a new folder. How can I create another folder on that level, not a sub folder.

So I want:

  • Bookmark bar
  • Other bookmarks
  • My new folder

and NOT

  • Bookmark bar

    • My new folder
  • Other bookmarks

Hope you get my point.

  • The three top folder are not real folders, they are telling you how their content is treated (displayed/not displayed/only displayed on mobile devices).
    That is a fixed list and cannot be extended.

    Any folders you add would be either visible in the bookmark bar, or not visible, right? (Or visible only on mobile). So they will be shown inside the respective lists.
