Windows 7: Trying out Chrome

Trying out Chrome

Not sure where to ask this, so I thought General Discussion would be fine.

I'm giving Chrome a try & it seems to be going along ok, I just have 2 questions as of right now though.
1. How do I bring my IE bookmarks into Chrome?
2. When using IE; in the Taskbar, I can see how many tabs are open & if I hover my cursor over the icon, I get a pop-up of each tab so I can just select which to see right away (attached picture). Is there a setting in Chrome which will do the same thing?

Hello CJW,

Q1) The tutorial below can help show you how to import favorites from IE into Chrome.
Chrome Browser - Import Favorites from Internet Explorer
Q2) Not sure about taskbar thumbnail previews for Chrome since they have been removed in Windows 7 in the newer versions of Chrome.

Hope this helps some. :)

1) You can directly import bookmarks from IE.

Click on 'Wrench' icon. Bookmarks>Import bookmarks and settings.
You can manually select Browsing history, Favorites/Bookmarks, Saved passwords, Search engines.

2) I am not sure about tab previews.

The aero peek tabs no longer work in chrome as the flag was removed a few releases ago, at least on the stable build anyway.

Favorites imported into Chrome :)
The Aero Peek Tabs being removed is a disappointment , I really like the feature.
Thanks for the help everyone.

Hopefully they'll add it back to Chrome in a future update.
