My Chrome bookmarks are combined and growing.
I'm using Chrome on my laptop, desktop, and iPhone.
My bookmarks are synchronized between edge and chrome.
I've deleted my Bookmarks.bak file from c:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\ (on both my laptop and desktop).
I fixed the bookmarks by deleting all (tons of) duplicates I got from lots of merging Chrome does and by deleting unused bookmarks.
I did it many times.
Chrome always gets back lots of old bookmarks (resizing my bookmark file from 1.2MB to 12MB).
BTW, I also tried to replace my Bookmarks.bak with my preferred Bookmarks file, but Chrome ignores it (or merges it)
How do I clean my bookmarks (preferably on my desktop) and force Chrome to use this version on all devices?
How do I prevent it from merging and merging?
