How to Manage Your Android Browser Bookmarks - Android OS Tips and Tricks

Almost everyone who uses a web browser has favorites or bookmarks of their sites that they go to most often. These bookmarks allow easy access to commonly used sites so you don't have to remember the website name or address of the site you want to get to.

The built in Android web browser allows you to have bookmarks just like the web browser on your computer does. For many devices there will be bookmarks already setup in the browser and you may not have a need for these bookmarks and may want to get rid of them. Or you may want to add your own or edit bookmarks you previously saved.

To get to your bookmarks go to your browser and then press the menu button. From there tap on Bookmarks and this will display your current bookmarks.
