For Quick & Easy Bookmarking Just Look for the Stars

This tip applies most modern browsers including Chrome, Firefox, and Edge (old & new). Firefox hides the star in a drop-down menu… but don’t worry we’ll show you that a star in any other place is still a star. 

Over hundreds of Cloudeight Direct sessions, it has occurred to me that most people have never noticed the star in (or near) their browser’s address bar. If you’re one of those folks, you’re missing out on one of the quickest and easiest ways to add websites or webpages to your Favorites or Bookmarks.

Here, we will show you some stars:

Who doesn’t like to bookmark their favorite sites or webpages? Nobody doesn’t 🙂

So what’s the big deal about the star? Well, if you want to add a website or webpage to your Favorites or bookmarks, just click the star while you’re on the site or page you want to bookmark. What could easier? Well, you dould use CTRL+D. But we wanted you to know what the star was for, and clicking the star is just as easy as CTRL+D to me. Maybe not you 🙂

How about another star? Sadly this one has long since departed this earthly coil…

A Movie Star...

One of my favorite movies is “The African Queen”.Bogie & Hepburn…fantastic.

      Yes–that still works too, I believe in almost all browsers. And in Firefox, you can also right-click on a page and you’ll see a star on the upper right. Choosing it will open up a dialog box asking what bookmarks folder you want to save it in.

      Indeed you can… but I was trying to explain what the star in the bar was for… but I added CTRL+D to the article. Although it’s 2 actions, just like clicking the Star 😉
