MyUW - Using the Bookmarks Module

The My Bookmarks app allows a My UW-Madison user to store internet site links in My UW-Madison. These links are then available from any computer that can access My UW-Madison. The My Bookmarks app can be found by searching for "My Bookmarks". The app can be launched for the search results page, or added to the homepage for easier access in the future.

Adding Bookmarks

  1. To add a bookmark, click the "Add Bookmark" link within the My Bookmarks module.

Editing / Deleting Bookmarks

  • Click the pencil icon next to a folder or bookmark to edit the name, URL, or location of the folder or bookmark.
  • Click the "X" icon next to the folder or bookmark to delete the folder or bookmark.


Note: Deleting a folder deletes all bookmarks and other folders contained within that folder. These cannot be restored.


Use the "Options" link in the My Bookmarks module to define folder behavior within My UW-Madison. Folders can start always open, always closed, or the folder state can be preserved meaning folders that are open when you exit My UW are open when you log back in, folders that are closed when you exit My UW are closed when you log back in.
