    You can create a symbolic link of your browser's bookmark file and put it in your desktop folder, or you can simply copy/paste the file to your desktop.

    However, depending on the browser you are using, for instance firefox, the bookmark file is part of firefox's profile which is a layout of how firefox is setup based on user preferences. This particular file is a special file, meaning it requires a special program to read it. You could use a text editor but the amount of machine language mixed within the file will make it a sore to read out the text.

    From what I was able to investigate, the bookmark folder it part of the browser and cab only be accessed by the browser as I can see.

    I did a little more research on browser bookmarks. What I found was exciting and fun to play with. I written a blog to document it. The blog hightlights firefox but I think it should give an idea on how to accomplish your goals.
