Show all settings
Bonjourr has lots of options. In an attempt to not be jarring for newcomers, we decided to hide most of them by default. If you’re an advanced user, you can enable all those options by toggling Show all settings at the very top of the settings menu.
Hide settings icon
When selecting the “Hide settings icon”, the icon is still clickable at the same position as before. You can also open the settings menu by pressing the
Bonjourr uses the Unsplash API to fetch its backgrounds. We select them manually and store them in four different collections that change according to the time of the day:
Custom Unsplash collection
You can make your own collection of images using Unsplash. To do so, you’ll need to create an Unsplash account and add all your images to a new collection. Once you’re pleased with your selection, you need the collection’s ID present in its URL. You will spot it easily since it’s the string of random letters and numbers. For example, if your collection’s URL is
https://unsplash.com/collections/2170139/wolfdogs-of-unsplash, the ID is
Head back to Bonjourr and paste the ID in the Unsplash collection field. You can add multiple collections by separating them with a comma.
Switch your background type from Dynamic to Custom, and you’ll be able to drag and drop your own images from your computer to Bonjourr.
You can add and import Quick Links from the settings, and edit them when you right click on them.
An easy way to add a custom icon to your Quick Link is to upload it on somewhere like Imgur, and use that link as an icon. You can also convert your icon to a Data URI (max 8kB).
⚠️ Notice: as a security measure, local paths like
file://, browser settings links like
chrome://extensions can’t be added. However,
localhost: links will work just fine.
Links folders are pretty cool. You can drag and drop them. Dragging a folder on another will add the content of the dragged folder in the target. Deleting a folder with links inside will also delete those links.
You can organize your links even more with link pages. To add a page, right click next to the default page. You cannot remove the default page, you can rename it. Deleting a page will remove the links inside.
When enabling the custom search engine option, the searchbar becomes compatible with all search engines, which includes things like YouTube (
Bonjourr gets its fonts from Fontsource. If you want to see previews of the fonts Bonjourr offers, please visit this page.
There are 3 different page layouts to choose from: single, double and triple column. Each layout saves the position and alignment of your widgets independently.
These options only affect the current layout:
- Widget toggle (Enable switches)
- All options in grid toolbox
- Reset layout
Bonjourr allows you to export all your settings into a file. You can use this feature if you want to save them or share them to someone. You will in turn be able to import said settings into any instance of Bonjourr.
To do so, simply go to the bottom of your settings pannel, then click Export as file in the settings management. Your file will be downloaded. On your other instance of Bonjourr, you can then go to the Import tab of the settings management and drop your file. Bonjourr will reload and all your settings will be applied.
Bonjourr is compatible with the automatic syncing features of both Firefox and Chrome. If you log into your Mozilla/Google account on your browser and have syncing enabled in your browser, Bonjourr should get synced to other instances of the same browser on other computers. This is true for all Bonjourr settings as well as Quick Links.
