    I am using Windows 8 and have been using Google Chrome for about 6 months now. Today it started playing up and now it wont launch at all. I have tried various internet suggestions such as typing no-sandbox in the 'properties' dialogue box in the target tab and tried fixing it with Windows own troubleshooter but still nothing. It doesn't even give a screen with the Chrome logo on it when I launch it - I just get a blue screen. Any ideas - I want my bookmarks.... thanks

    I may be wrong but i'm pretty sure Chrome saves your bookmarks onto a folder in your hard-drive, so you should be able to access them manually (if you can find the location), it will probably be in a hidden folder under your user profile (folder).

    Thanks found the bookmarks - brilliant. Now to change to a new browser - any suggestions? IE doesn't work properly for me in forums like this or FB and Chrome apparently disappears for no reason with no way of retrieving it - and the bookmark manager was rubbish anyway....

    Try Avant. It is a front end for IE and has Chrome and Firefox engines built in.

    The current version of Opera is a front end for Chrome.
