Why Can't I See Bookmarks From Chrome in Android in Chrome on the PC?

Chrome syncs across your devices using the profile you are logged into. When syncing is turned off, Chrome will not be able to match the browsed tabs from Android to the desktop, and Tabs from other devices won't display the open tabs. First, ensure you signed into the same Google account in Android and the Chrome browser on the desktop. Then, check the Sync and Google Services settings.

  1. On a desktop PC, open Chrome and select the three dots in the upper-right corner.

  2. Select Settings.

  4. Select Sync and Google Services in the You and Google section.

  6. Choose Sync everything or Customize sync.

    For customizing your sync data, go down the list and enable Bookmarks and Open tabs if they are disabled. This step ensures your browsing sessions will carry over from one device to another, and you can see all open tabs on the Tabs from other devices screen.
