I need to know the format of the HTML file that Chrome is looking for. If in Chrome settings, I click on import bookmarks it gives me the option of importing from an HTML file. Does anyone have and example of this file so that I can just create it manually? All the machines I deal with use Windows 10 and having this file would make things portable for me to do a transfer with a thumb drive.

From any browser you can export the existing bookmarks and save it as HTML file that Chrome can use to import. Cant see a specific format.

Right, why not export it with one sample favorite and the edit the exported file to your needs using (for example) notepad ?

Try the export, it is easy and you'll be asked where to save the exported file and what name to use.
