Manage Bookmarks

Bookmarks help to make myWKU more useful. Unlike standard internet browser favorites that can only be accessed at one area, myWKU makes your favorite websites available anywhere. Never worry about losing your bookmarks when you switch machines because myWKU bookmarks stays with the application as long as you have a myWKU account. The original location of Bookmarks is on the Campus Info page middle column first position. You may add Folders and sub-folders to your portlet enter any favorites that you want, edit the information as needed, cut and paste, refresh the portlet and delete information from the portlet, and you will have the drag and drop functionality in that portlet.
