7.6. Bookmarks

Instead of remembering and reentering addresses for sites visited often, you can bookmark these URLs using the Bookmark menu. As well as Web page addresses, you can also bookmark any directories of your local disk in this way.

To create a new bookmark in Konqueror, click Bookmarks+Add Bookmark. Any bookmarks added previously are included as items in the menu. It is a good idea to arrange the bookmark collection by subjects in a hierarchical structure, so that you do not lose track of the different items. Create a new subgroup for your bookmarks with New Bookmark Folder. Selecting Bookmarks+Edit Bookmarks opens the bookmark editor. Use this program to organize, rearrange, add, and delete bookmarks.

If you are using Netscape, Mozilla, or Firefox as additional browsers, it is not necessary to recreate your bookmarks. File+Import+Import Netscape Bookmarks in the bookmark editor enables you to integrate your Netscape and Mozilla bookmarks into your most current collection. The reverse is also possible via Export as Netscape Bookmarks.

Change your bookmarks by right-clicking the entry. A pop-up menu appears in which to select the desired action (cut, copy, delete, etc.). When you are satisfied with the result, save the bookmarks with File+Save. If you only want to change the name or link, just right-click the entry in the bookmark toolbar and select Properties. Change the name and location and confirm with Update.

To save your bookmark list and have instant access to it, make your bookmarks visible in Konqueror. Select Settings+Toolbars+Bookmark Toolbar (Konqueror). A bookmark panel is automatically displayed in the current Konqueror window.
