Questions and Answers

How do I create bookmarks in Galaxy S4?

My menu in the Galaxy S4 r does not show an option for creating a bookmark according the url address shown. It only has the option "bookmarks" not "add a bookmark" Can you help me? Thanks. Paul

Which menu are you referring to? You can add bookmarks to the browser itself or the widget, but you will need to do it from the app. Open the browser app, and hit the bookmarks icon:

http://screencast.com/t/dm16jzH7pu

On the page that comes up, hit the plus icon to add your bookmarks:

http://screencast.com/t/oRAcafVu8

Here is a quick guide on how to add a bookmark in your Samsung S4 please kindly read carefully and follow each steps.

  • Go to Internet, it is either the icon in your home screen or in the applications menu.
  • The default browser should have a Lumen toolbar whereas you can customize shortcuts your favorite web page.
  • To show the Lumen toolbar, swipe up/tap and drag the screen from the lower right corner.
  • Scroll either left or right and select your desired shortcut.
  • In the web page, simply tap the Add more and add a shortcut.
  • Now simply go to the web address you wish to add as bookmark and press go, wait for the page to load.
  • Tap the bookmark icon and select add bookmark or save bookmark.
  • Now if you can't see the add bookmark simply tap the bookmark, tap and hold your desired bookmark and click edit then input manually your desired web page.

There is no "saved pages" option as shown above.

Please double check the settings when you tap the soft key button menu on your phone. There, you should be able to see the options for the browser where you can save the pages on your phone. This is a standard feature for the internet browser that you are using on your mobile phone. In any case, there are some phones that do not say "Saved Pages" for you to have or read it while the phone is not connected to the internet. If you wanted to read a web page when its offline, instead, you should see there a phrase of "Save for offline reading" which is just the same as saved pages. Once it have been saved for off line reading, go to your favorites tab and you should be able to see there the "Saved pages" tab on the top screen. There are three tabs there as Bookmarks, History and the Saved Pages.
