    Google Chrome bookmark synching

    I have my windows 7 laptop and use Google Chrome.
    My wife has windows 8.1 and she also uses Google Chrome.

    We have separate Google accounts.
    We would like use and sync the bookmarks I have on my laptop.

    1) Is there any way we can sync them?
    2) Can the syncing be done both ways?

    Thank you.

    I doubt that you can sync bookmarks across 2 different accounts. If it were me, I would export the bookmarks to a file on your machine and copy them to a thumbdrive and put them on your wifes machine and then import them to her bookmarks.
    Have you tried google help with this query?

    Thank you for your answer Lumpy.
    You first paragraph is very logical answer but unfortunately we will have to repeat the process very often to be able to keep them always updated.
    No, I did not try "Google Help".....Perhaps I should.

    According to the link that Rick posted, that involves being on the same computer. What if you made an account for yourself on her computer? That way you might be able to follow the advice from the article.
    Just a thought.
