To create a bookmark folder just follow these steps:
- Open all the websites that you want to open in different tabs.
- Now press Ctrl+Shift+D on your keyboard a popup menu will appear.
- Just name the folder whatever you want to call it and select Bookmarks Bar. Now you have created a bookmark folder.

Open favourite sites every time you open Chrome
All the above methods are very good and time-saving but they are still 2-3 click methods. What if, every time you open Chrome, the browser automatically opens all your favourite tabs. That would be great right? If you think yes, try the next method is for you.
- Open all your favourite websites that you visit regularly
- Open Settings on your Chrome browser, and hit the On startup option at the bottom
