Frequently Asked Questions
Icons are automatically added to new bookmarks. To add icons to your existing
bookmarks, use the 'Bookmark | Update web icons' function.
Web icons are only available in the Pro edition of Linkman.
Select the files in Explorer, right click and use the Send to -> Linkman function.
Alternatively multiple files can be drag & dropped from Explorer to a Linkman window
or the 'Bookmark | Add shortcuts to local files' menu function can be used.
Linkman communicates with the browsers using the TCP/IP protocol, so you can add or search Linkman links
directly in your browser. By default the "port" (connection channel) number 80 is used for this purpose.
This works on 99% of all computers. On some computers another software may use the port number 80
already, so you get the activation error. To establish communication between your Browser and Linkman
you have to choose another port.
Step 1: In Linkman go to Tools | Settings | Browser and change the port from 80 to 81.
Step 2: In your browser go to the Addon Manager and look for the Linkman Addon.
In options | settings of the Linkman Addon change the port from 80 to 81.
Visit http://www.outertech.com with the Browser you need the addon to be reinstalled. Scroll down until you see the Linkman menu on the left side.
Click on the corresponding addon and follow the instructions.

URL stands for Uniform Resource Locator. In popular usage a URL is referred to as a world wide web address.
In Linkman's help files the term URL is used to describe a Linkman link, a Firefox bookmark or a IE Favorite.
Use the Edit | Add Keywords to selected items function.
When searching for multiple terms, name and keywords of the parent folder will be taken into consideration for every link inside.
You have a folder called music with several links inside. Some of these links have the keyword software. If you search for music software all of these links will be found, even if they don't possess the music keyword.
So if you want to add a keyword to several links at once, simply at the keyword to the folder that contains these links instead.
This works also with folders, to add a keyword to multiple folders at once, add it to the parent folder that contains these folders instead.
Note: Linkman Pro (not Linkman Lite) has also a "Add Keyword to the selected links" feature in the shortcut menu.
Please refer to Purchase Linkman Pro section for detailed information.
