1. Chrome has a bookmark manager function.

2. What OS ? What browser ?

I know the 'export bookmarks' in older browsers used to alphabetize your bookmarks whether you wanted it or not.

3. I have about 3000 bookmarks

There are folders and subfolders and more subfolders.

Somehow I managed to preserve the chronological sort over several generations of computers.

If I moved a folder it would confuse me, so it's a foundation now.

If I rename a folder, it causes the sort to go to alphabetical. Not my cuppa tea.

Once a year I have to see what's inactive and delete them.

I regularly backup to HTML and store the file in several places.

4. I'm really not enjoying the thought of having to do this sorely needed task.

I keep postponing and it keeps on growing. Thanks! It's good that those folders work for you; at least you've got categories in which to play hide and seek, haha! Perhaps once I see what's there again, it will all magically fall into a nice tidy "place" to easily re-locate. Many probably aren't as important as I once thought. I will have to look into that Chrome bookmark manager as recommended above...
