Yahoo! Bookmarks is an online service that lets you save links to your favorite web pages with your Yahoo! account so that you can access them from any computer connected to the Internet anywhere in the world. If you’ve bookmarked pages using your browser’s feature, you can import those links into your Yahoo! Bookmarks, and have all of your favorite pages at your fingertips.
The Yahoo! Toolbar includes a Bookmarks button that lets you save pages to your Bookmarks and, of course, open bookmarked pages. To use the button and work with Yahoo! Bookmarks, you need to sign in to your Yahoo! account.
Note: The newest Yahoo! Toolbar for the Internet Explorer browser
includes the Bookmarks button. You’re using
the latest Toolbar if you see the yellow Web Search button
on your Toolbar (),
and you should see the Bookmarks button.
If your Yahoo! Toolbar shows a gray Search Web button (), you’re working with an older version of the Toolbar. If you don’t see the Bookmarks button, you either need to sign in to see your customized Toolbar or you need to add the button to the Toolbar. For help signing in, see the Signing In to Yahoo! tutorial. For help adding buttons to your Toolbar, see Using the Yahoo! Toolbar With Internet Explorer tutorial or the Using the Yahoo! Toolbar With Mozilla Firefox tutorial.
Click the Bookmarks button, then select Sign in to use Bookmarks!.
Tip: You can really select any item from the Bookmarks menu. If you aren’t signed in, you’ll be asked to do so before Yahoo! Bookmarks continues with the requested item.
The Yahoo! sign-in page opens.
Type your Yahoo! ID and password, then click the Sign In button.
The Yahoo! Bookmarks page opens and you’re ready to use the Bookmarks button.
