    It didn't work for me. It asked what program I wanted to use to open the file…and of course I obviously selected the wrong one. Now I'm at just the same place!!!

      Robin: See the "How to restore chrome bookmarks" section to find out how to restore the "Bookmarks' file

    I tried the steps listed, but after I reopened the browser after adding my bookmark files, the bookmarks bar is still empty. I'm able to see the URL links when I open them in notepad++, so I don't think they're corrupted. Is there anything else for me to check?

    OS: Windows 10 Enterprise 1809
    Chrome ver: 72.0.3626.119

      @Wil: Make sure that you copy the bookmarks file in the correct location

    Bookmarks for Chrome under Windows XP do not seem to be in html-format. Is there a way to export bookmarks from an old, crashed Win XP machine (bookmarks-file is alright) – convert to html, and then import in Chrome under Windows 10?

      The restoring process in the same at all Windows versions. Just copy the Bookmarks file from the XP machine to Windows 10 machine at the profile folder location (%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\default)
