Hello friends! We’re back from the summer vacation and therefore it’s time for a new release of our bookmarks manager. In the new minor release we added a few new features and ensured better support of the latest versions of browsers.

A couple of new settings

If you look into the Link Commander’s settings you will see two modifications right away. First, you will find a new hotkey, which allows opening web-links from the clipboard. Now, if you want to open a URL from the clipboard, you no longer need to open a new tab in your browser, then paste the URL from the clipboard into the address line of the browser and finally, press Enter in order to open the URL. All you need to do now is just press the magic hotkey and, voila!, the necessary URL from your clipboard opens in your browser!

Secondly, the program can now automatically minimize the main window when a bookmark is opened in an external browser. Hint: To keep the program’s window on your display, simply press and hold Ctrl button when opening the bookmark.

Filtering by URL verification

Another useful new feature in this release allows filtering your bookmarks collection by the results of verification of the links. You can use this filter to quickly identify all bookmarks containing broken links. The filter will also find all bookmarks containing unverified URLs.

Hi friends, we added two new features in the new release. These features aim to improve the usability of our bookmark manager.

Search for duplicates from the folder context menu

The duplicates search and removal tool can now be easily started from the context menu of a bookmark collection or folder. Just right-click on the necessary folder and choose the Find duplicates command from the popup menu. The program will then start the duplicates search tool and will search for duplicates in the specified folder. You will only need to select the duplicates that need to be removed.

Adding a link from the browser using a hotkey

We added another hotkey for quick adding of links from web browsers running on the computer. By default, it uses the Alt+L combination, but you can reassign it in the program settings. When you use this hotkey, the program will show a menu with a list of all links found on all the tabs of all the browsers running on the computer. Just pick a link you’d like to add to your bookmarks. Convenient, isn’t it?

Hello friends!

After a small break that we took to contemplate on the future of our bookmark manager, we are glad to finally present the new release.

This release features a possibility to import bookmarks from Read It Later.

What is Read It Later?

What? You haven’t heard about Read It Later yet? Hmm… that’s weird! Read It Later is a great free online service that allows you to quickly save links to pages you’d like to get back in the future when you have time. The service supports all popular browsers and can be used on regular PCs and mobile devices.

Importing bookmarks from Read It Later

To import bookmarks saved in Read It Later to your Link Commander bookmark collection, start the import wizard from the Files menu and choose Read It Later as a source. You will then have to specify your Read It Later account details (username and password). Two additional settings allow you to import unread bookmarks only and mark all bookmarks as read after importing them.
