What is a Bookmark?

Written by John Harris, Updated on October 06, 2023


Remember reading a book, flipping through some pages, and marking it so that you can pick up from where you left off? The same concept applies to browsing as well.

Bookmarks mean saving the website link on your browser so that you don’t have to type and search for them every time you need to access them. Almost all browsers like Google Chrome, Safari, Microsoft Edge, and Mozilla Firefox support this bookmarking feature.

How to Add Bookmark?

To bookmark the current page, press Ctrl+D. This feature is common in almost all browsers.

Users can also click on the Bookmark icon present on the right side of the link to add the bookmark.
