Well, in that case I'm sorry to tell you but it is not possible to achieve the same result. In fact, no Favorites bar is available on a mobile device and, consequently, there is no option that allows you to enable its display. On smartphones and tablets, in fact, the favorites can be viewed by accessing a specific tab.

    To access the tab where all the favorites are grouped on a mobile device, the first step you need to take is to access the Android or iOS home screen and press the app icon. Then tap the button Menu (I cheer with i three dots) that you find located in the right part of the browser window and then presses on the item Add to Wishlist attached to the menu that is shown to you. Once this is done, you will immediately be shown a new tab in the Chrome window through which you can view all the favorite folders on the left side of the same and the various bookmarks on the right side.

You can also immediately create a new folder by tapping on New folder…, typing the name you want to assign to it and then tapping on end.
