Default [Q] Bookmarks Help

Can anyone tell me if there is a faster way to get to my bookmarks please? At the moment to get to them I have to click on the Google bar at top of my home screen, press back to exit my keyboard, press the little options button at the bottom, click on 'help' , then click on the options button at the top of this screen and then click on bookmarks .......what a palaver

Surely there is a faster way, is it possible to put a shortcut to my bookmarks on my home screen? Thanks for help guys

Long press a blank spot on your home screen and this should come up push widgets and this should show up long press the widget you need drag it to where you want it. You can also try sslauncher but its a tad bit advanced

That's a hell of a way to get to the browser. As an alternative, you can try tapping the Chrome icon.

Or you can just tap the little star at the bottom.

However, I can go into apps, then widgets, then add the little bookmark widget to my homescreen. It then asks me which bookmark I want to choose and just changes the widget to that bookmark. It won't let me add all my bookmarks so they are all in that widget. I'm rubbish with technology lol

There's another widget, called Bookmarks (with an S), that shows all your bookmarks in a scrollable way.
