Problem importing chrome boomarks into IE 11

How do I Import Chrome Bookmarks into Internet Explorer 11?
I am trying to import my chrome bookmarks into internet explorer. I have lots of bookmarks on my android tablet I would like to browse on my PC

I have Chrome installed on my PC to view them there but much prefer Internet Explorer

I have tried to export them as a file from chrome
Also tried to import them as a file into internet Explorer
Says ok But they don't seem to be there.

Hey jo69,

I am amazed that you want to use IE over Chrome to browse your favorites.

However, you can import all bookmarks from Chrome to IE 11.
Click the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar.
Select Bookmarks.
Select Bookmark manager.
Click the Organize menu in the manager.
Select Export bookmarks.
Chrome will export your bookmarks as a HTML file, which you can then import into Internet Explorer 11.,

When you are selecting the options "What to import" in IE. Just select favorites. Do not select any other option, feeds etc. Import the html file that you made from chrome into IE.

You can always roll back to ie10 and see if it has issues with the file type ?

Which by the way ie10 is more stable at this point and time.
As long as the file type is HTML it should work.

Hey thanks Thrash that worked!!!!
So now I also know how to uninstall a version of IE too lol Is 11 no good?

Next question is, now I have them in IE can I sort them out and remove them from the bookmarks bar it imported to combine in my favorites?

Also my only problem now is IE 10 shows a blank page saying theres a problem each time I open it Untill I keep clicking on a favourite

In Internet explorer the Bookmarks bar is actually the Favorites bar,
But please post a screen shot so we can see exactly what your referring to,
But yes ie11 is a bit buggy at this time and date ie10 is much easier to deal with if an issue appears,
Blank screen,
I would go ahead and Reset Internet explorer 10 I believe a link to reset has been posted already but here it is again with a bit of a tweak in the process,
Reset process first opening Internet explorer
Also I made this in hopes it would help others review other settings in Internet explorer please review it and use some of the suggestions,
Tweaks for Internet explorer
Glad something went well see the link above my signature to take and post screen shots,
Cheers.
