Why Chrome Shows my bookmarks even when I have bookmarks bar turned off?
When doing a screencast or presentation, you would like to not show people your bookmarks. So you turn off the bookmark bar. However, when you open up a new tab in Chrome and if Google.com is your browsers default home page, then it shows the bookmarks on your Google homepage (even if you are not signed in on Google). Isn’t that annoying.
Is there a way to turn this “feature” off? Nope.
There is no Chrome setting to turn this off as noted in this thread. However, there is a work around. You can stuff all your bookmarks into a bookmarks folder using the Bookmark Manager.
