I can guess you are worrying versus doing. Do the Chrome, login and watch the magic.
I have a laptop with a screen that jumps around. Have been told it was the screen, I have it hooked up to my tv and no problem. It just had 4 virus infected files removed. (they were free so I can't complain!) They reinstalled a new ver of win 10 and my files, but not my browsers.
I lost all my links and pws (maybe a good thing to have to change). anyway, I thought that chrome kept your info online since you have to sign in to sync?
Do they? can I send that info from my phone - some is there I think.
I really miss my bookmarks and had wanted to retrieve them.
