How to restore bookmarks


Recommended Posts

If you unluckily lose bookmarks, you can try to restore the bookmarks by using the backup file.

1. Open Maxthon 6 browser.

2. Open the installation path, for example, D:\Users\lenovo\AppData\Local\Maxthon\

3. Open the folder "User Data" under the folder "Maxthon"

3. Find the account folder you'd like to restore data, such as "Default"

4. Under the folder "Default," you can find and open the folder "Backups" > "BookMarks"

5. Choose a backup file, copy it, then paste it to your account folder, such as "Default"

7. Rename the backup file as "Bookmarks," no file suffix required; delete the previous file "Bookmarks."

Hello.
Thank you for the step-by-step explanation. But let me disagree with one point.
I found backups and did exactly as you have scheduled, but the bookmarks still disappeared time after time.
Item #1 "close the Maxthon browser" is superfluous and because of it, the instructions will not work!
The fact is, after my bookmarks disappeared, they were deleted from the cloud (synchronization). When I restored them from a backup, Maxthon checked at startup which version of bookmarks is more up-to-date, local or cloud, and each time again reset the local bookmarks!
But if you restore the bookmark file while running Maxthon, and then restart Maxthon, then the local version is considered more up-to-date and is not erased!
