Using Chrome Sync
Posted by Patricia Goodman on 07 June 2018 04:01 PM

When you sign in to Chrome Sync, all of your Chrome bookmarks and browsing history is saved to your Google Account so that you can access it whenever you need it, from any Chrome browser on any computer or device. 

  • You can see and update your synced info on all your devices, like bookmarks, history, passwords, and other settings.
  • If you change devices (like if you lost your phone or got a new laptop), you'll get all your info back.

Setting up Chrome Sync

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. In the top right, click the Menu button (the three horizontal dots in the upper right corner)
  3. Click Settings
  4. If you see your name listed in the center top, then you're already signed in and you're all set!  Otherwise, click Sign in to Chrome, then
    • enter in your Goshen College email address and click Next
    • and then enter in your Goshen College password and click Next
  5. When prompted, click the Link Data button.

All of your browser bookmarks and items on the Address bar, browsing history, and other settings are now synced into your Chrome Sync account in Google. 

Accessing Chrome Sync On Other Computers or Devices

Once you set up Chrome Sync with the above instructions, you can use the Google Chrome browser on a different computer or device and get to your bookmarks, etc., by doing the following:

  1. Open the Chrome browser, click the Menu button (the three horizontal dots)
  2. Click Settings
  3. If you see your name listed in the center top, then you're already signed in and you're all set!  Otherwise, click Sign in to Chrome, then
    • enter in your Goshen College email address and click Next
    • and then enter in your Goshen College password and click Next
  4. When prompted, click the Link Data button. Your bookmarks will start appearing in a matter of seconds.
