How to switch back to the old bookmark manager in Chrome

I was a bit suprised today, when I tried to bookmark a website in Chrome.

Chrome has apparently updated its bookmark manager. And for me, it has not gotten any better!

I don’t like the new card/tile listing of my bookmarks and folders, it makes them difficult to find at a glance, and it all looks just like a colorful mess…

I wanted the old look back. The one with the simple list of bookmarks. I couldn’t find any list view options in this new bookmark manager, so I had to search the chrome experiments, and found this:

chrome://flags/#enhanced-bookmarks-experiment

Luckily, it’s just changing this “Enable Enhanced Bookmarks” option back to “Disabled” and restart Chrome.
