Step 4: Save the HTML file and transfer it to a pen drive or any other portable device.

On your MAC:

Step 1: Follow the same steps as above till Step 2 and then at Step 3 instead of Export, click on Import Bookmarks from HTML file.

That’s it, your bookmarks must be now visible on your Bookmarks bar. If not, please restart your Chrome browser to see ‘em.
