Hi there and welcome

If you signed into Google Chrome then it will be stored online and you just need to sign into Google Chrome again via the three dots in the top right, then settings and sign in.

Do you recall ever signing into Chrome and / or what your Gmail account was?

Please let me know

ok can you explain how i can recover my bookmarks
Computer technician: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 8 months ago

The only way is if you can sign in with the correct Gmail account in Chrome IF you initially signed in at all.

It looks like you never signed into chrome which means that once you formattted the computer you lost the bookmarks.

They will then not be recoverable, but now that I had you sign into your account in Chrome, the new ones you make are being backed up, so you will not lose them again as long as you maintain access to this Gmail account.
