The bookmarklet is our Quick Save option. It looks like a bookmark in your browser. When you click it, it runs a little JavaScript program that opens our Bookmarks adder. This way, you can add bookmarks to all your favorite pages and continue surfing the web. It works in every browser.

It's also free for all users.

Instructions:

1. Quick installation [back to top]

Drag this button to the Bookmarks bar of your browser:

Add to start.me

Like this:

Now, when you've found a website you want to bookmark, click the Bookmarklet.

2. Show Bookmarks bar [back to top]

You can use the bookmarklet from any bookmark location, but we recommend the Bookmarks Bar.

For Google Chrome or Chromium browsers (including Microsoft Edge):

  • Press Ctrl-Shift-B.

  • Or click the options icon on your top right and go to the option 'Bookmarks.'

For Firefox, Internet Explorer and Pale Moon users, there is no shortcut available. You can still right-click in the address bar to toggle the bookmarks bar.

  • or by pressing ⇧⌘B

Once your bookmarks bar is visible, drag and drop the following button to your bookmarks toolbar:

Add to start.me

Click it, and start bookmarking.

3. Custom installation [back to top]

If the drag and drop method doesn't work, make sure your browser is configured to:

  • Allow pop-ups windows.

  • Accept third-party cookies.

  • Enable JavaScript.

Now manually copy the code below.

Locate a bookmark in the Bookmark bar you don't want to use anymore. Right-click it, and select Edit.

Paste the JavaScript Code into the URL field of the bookmark.

Now you can start bookmarking sites for your start.me page at the click of a single button.

4. Resources [back to top]

Mobile users can add the bookmarklet too. You'll find more information here in this support article: Install our bookmarklet on your mobile device.
