Chrome: Moving Favorite to a Favorite Folder

Stephen Kairys

I have several favorites in (for lack of a better term) that are bookmarked.  I wish to place them in their own folder. (I'm referring to the favorites bar near the top of the screen.)  I created the folder; however, I am unable to copy and paste the favorites.  

I did the following:
1. Right clicked on the favorite I wished to copy. (BeethTrio)
2  Chose COPY.
3. Brought up the new folder.
4. Pressed [CTRL]-V to paste

But nothing happens.

Please see the screenshot below. The icon I wish to copy is to the left of the folder "78sRemaster."

Right-click on the Bookmarks bar and choose Bookmark manager from the Context Menu.
Chrome browser Bookmarks bar Context Menu
That will open a new tab to chrome://bookmarks/#1, which is an Explorer-type interface where you can select the Bookmarks bar on the left, then drag and drop the items on the right (you can also re-order them from there using drag and drop).
