Only show the favicons in your Internet toolbar

Updated: 04/26/2017 by Computer Hope

An easy way to save space on your Internet browser favorites or bookmarks bar is to remove the description of each bookmark. Most people can identify their bookmarks by the favicon associated with the page.

Pinned tabs

On the bottom row of the above picture is an example of our bookmarks bar, as can be seen there are 16 different bookmarks that only show the favicon. Normally having this many bookmarks would have exceeded the available space on the bar and make it more time consuming to find your favorite page.

To remove the page title from a bookmark follow the steps below.

  1. Right-click on the bookmark.
  2. Click Edit or Properties.
  3. For the name of the bookmark erase everything and then click Ok.

Repeat these steps for each of your bookmarks. You can also rename the bookmark to another name to help you organize it or remember it better.
