How to Delete Bookmarks in Google Chrome

Google Chrome is currently among the most popular and widely-used internet browsers in the world, quite possibly due to its ease of use, as well as the wide variety of customization options it offers. One of these features is also the fact that Chrome makes it incredibly simple to bookmark any page, only requiring one quick click, in order to be able to revisit it in the future.

However, this simplicity might mean that you sometimes bookmark a page accidentally. Or, you might just want to delete some of your old bookmarks that you no longer have use for. No matter the reason, here are some ways you could remove your bookmarks from Google Chrome:

Deleting a bookmark from the web page itself

If you are currently visiting a previously bookmarked web page that you would like to delete, you can effortlessly do so by following these steps below:

  1. In the URL bar at the beginning of the window, press the blue star icon.
  2. Now, simply press the Remove tab in order to delete this specific bookmark.

Deleting one bookmark from the dedicated manager

If you aren’t exactly sure what the name of the web page you’d like to remove is, you could also delete any of your bookmarks using Chrome’s dedicated Bookmark Manager:

  1. Load Google Chrome using your computer, and type chrome://bookmarks/ into the URL bar.
  2. Here, locate the bookmark you’d like to delete and press the three vertical dots located beside it.
  3. From the following options, press Delete.
  4. If you want to remove a number of other bookmarks, repeat this same process.

Deleting all bookmarks from the dedicated manager

In case you’d like to remove all of the bookmarks you’ve previously saved on Chrome, you have the option of doing it through the Bookmark Manager as well. Here’s how:

  1. Load Google Chrome using your computer, and type chrome://bookmarks/ into the URL bar.
  2. Click anywhere in the bookmarks list, and then press the CTRL/Command + A keys on your keyboard. This will highlight and select all of your bookmarks.
  3. Finally, click on the blue Delete button.

Deleting bookmarks on Chrome for mobile

In case you’re using Chrome on your tablet or smartphone, however, you can delete your previously saved bookmarks just by following these simple steps:

  1. Using your tablet or phone, load the Google Chrome application.
  2. Press the three dots at the top or bottom (depending on your OS) and then choose Bookmarks.
  3. To delete only one bookmark, swipe left over it, and then press Delete.
  4. To delete several bookmarks, press the Edit option, and then press on each bookmark you’d like to remove. Finally, press Delete.

And that’s it! Whether you want to remove only one or even all of your bookmarks from Google Chrome, you can now do so quickly and easily, regardless of the device you’re using, just by following this helpful guide above.
