It’s time to declutter your bookmarks!
Bookmarks help to save necessary and essential web pages and are almost always a click away. Though it is a very handy feature and saves you the hassle of rummaging through the browser history to find a page, it also sometimes results in a huge pile of saved URLs that you no longer need.
Fortunately, there are multiple ways you can delete the bookmarks on Chrome. Whether you created them accidentally or you just wish to clear the clutter, whatever your reason maybe, this guide will serve you just fine on how to do it.
Delete Bookmarks from Chrome on the Desktop
The Desktop browser offers a variety of ways you can delete bookmarks. You can either search and delete a particular bookmark or you can bulk delete a group of them. Additionally, you can also remove a bookmarked website right from the webpage screen.
Remove the Currently Opened Bookmark
If you have the website already opened or you accidentally bookmarked it, you do not have to hop through the Settings menu.
Click on the ‘Solid Star’ icon present in the right corner of the address bar. Then, click on the ‘Remove’ button to delete the bookmark.
Search and Delete a Particular Bookmark
First, click on the ‘kebab menu’ icon and then hover over the ‘Bookmarks’ option. Next, click on the ‘Bookmarks Manager’ option from the sub-menu.
Alternatively, head to the chrome://bookmarks URL to view all the bookmarks of Chrome.
After that, use the search bar to find a webpage. Then, from the search results, click on the kebab menu icon.
Bulk Delete Bookmarks
Since bookmarks are segregated into folders, you can easily delete all the bookmarks in a particular folder in one fell swoop. But you will need to delete each folder separately.
First, head to the ‘Bookmarks Manager’ using the overflow menu present in the top right corner.
After that, right-click on the folder you wish to remove and click on the ‘Delete’ option.
Delete Bookmarks from Chrome on Mobile
Deleting bookmarks from Chrome on mobile is almost as simple and easy as its Desktop counterpart and offers the same convenience.
Remove the Bookmark for a Website Currently Open
From the webpage that is already bookmarked, tap on the ‘ellipsis’ menu.
Then tap on the ‘Edit bookmark’ option from the list. This will bring an overlay window to your screen.
After that, tap on the ‘Delete’ option from the bottom of the page.
Remove a Specific Bookmark
To remove only a particular bookmark, from the Chrome home page, tap on the ‘ellipsis’ icon.
Next, tap on the ‘Bookmarks’ icon.
After that, use the search bar by tapping on it and entering a keyword for the bookmark you wish to search. Then, from the search results, tap and hold the bookmark you wish to delete.
Then, tap on the ‘Delete’ option from the menu that appears.
Remove All Bookmarks in a Single Go
From the Chrome home page, tap on the ‘ellipsis’ icon.
Then tap on the ‘Bookmarks’ option.
Next, tap on the ‘Edit’ option from the bottom right corner of the screen.
Now, select all folders by tapping on each listing or you can choose only select folders. Finally, tap on the ‘Delete’ button to delete all the selected folders.
There you go, folks. Deleting bookmarks is simple and easy. Whether you wish to clear all bookmarks accumulated over the years or just a specific one, this guide has now enabled you to do so.
