We had a good turnout at yesterday’s class, including online participants.
The first question was about the favorites or bookmark bar on a browser. How does one make it show?
In Chrome/Brave, click the browser menu button ( Chrome, Brave), then Bookmarks > Show bookmarks bar. You can also just press Ctrl+Shift+B to turn the bar off or on. This shortcut also works for Edge. Firefox does not have a bookmark bar and the shortcut simply opens a window that shows all bookmarks.

Chrome bookmark button
To have an item appear on the bookmark bar, have the webpage open in the browser and click the bookmark button.
Shorten the name to something useful, select the Bookmarks bar Folder, then click Done. The new shortcut will appear on the Bookmark bar. Since the shortcut will appear with its icon, the name may not be needed. The less room the name is the more shortcuts that appear on the bar.
Edge works like the above except they are called favorites and the bar is a favorites bar.
When you change to another browser and have favorites assigned on your old one, you can import the favorites-shortcuts to the new browser. In the same menu we used to create the shortcut bar, find a selection to import them from another browser.

It works and now is set up to view movies and more. Let’s take a look at the same box as last week, but with some channels added. It did not work as well as I expected as the channels I added at home did not come with me. I assume it had to do with the limited memory in the box I purchased. However, it was easy to install the latest Kodi and add the programming to it suing the video link below.
