I have an older ipad....OS 16.5.1.....I am NOT experienced ipad user....
I have Brave on my Windows PC and would like to transfer the bookmarks from Brave Windows
to Brave Ipad......
Is there a way to do this......
I can export my bookmarks on Brave Windows no problem....
But I'm probably going to need pretty explicit instructions on
the ipad side....

Thanks in advance.....

I have the Brave bookmarks exported in an HTML file from my Windows PC.....
I open up Brave on the Ipad and then Bookmarks....but it does not allow me to import......
I don't have a files folder on the ipad and i don't have a spotlight in the upper right corner....

You did not say what iPad model or iOS version you are using. The instructions may not work if it's too old. The App Store page says you need at least iOS 15.

Files is an app that gives you a file system on the iPad similar to Windows Explorer. When the instructions say you need to upload the html file to Files, this what they mean. Not a specific folder, but to a folder in that app. The Downloads folder should do.

There are several ways to copy files from Windows to iOS. The easiest is if you have an iCloud account, and download/install iCloud for Windows. They you an just drag/drop it and wait a bit for the files to sync.


Apple also has this support page, though I've never used it.


There are several other options, including connecting to shared Windows folders in the Files app.

Since I don't have Brave, that's all I can suggest. I'm not sure why you are looking for Spotlight. I don't see it in the instructions.

Also, make sure Windows saved the export file as .html. Sometimes
windows likes to use .htm

Apple apps don't always recognize the three letter variation.

Good luck.
