Bookmarking is an efficient way to access websites that you frequently use. However, when you have a lot of bookmarks, it can clutter the bookmark bar, making it hard to access the URLs that you need. If you are finding it challenging to manage your Mac bookmarks, you need to know how to delete bookmarks on Mac. Here’s how to do it.
First, if you want to delete a bookmark, you need to open your browser. Open Safari or any other web browser that you use regularly. If you are using Safari, click on the “Bookmarks” option on the browser’s top menu. After selecting the bookmarks option, you’ll see a drop-down menu. From there, you can choose which bookmarks you want to delete.
Second, find the bookmark you want to delete. You can either scroll through your bookmarks or search for a specific bookmark in the search box. Once you find the bookmark, you need to right-click on it. A list of options will appear. You can select “delete” or press the “Delete” key on your keyboard. If you’re using a MacBook, you can use the “Command + Delete” key to delete the bookmark.
Third, if you want to remove a folder of bookmarks, click on the folder and wait for it to expand. Once it expands, you’ll see a list of bookmarks. Right-click on the folder and choose the “Delete” option. Alternatively, you can drag the folder to the trash bin icon on your dock if you want to delete it.
Fourth, if you want to remove all your bookmarks at once, go to the Bookmarks drop-down menu and click on “Edit Bookmarks…” A new window will open with all your bookmarks. Press “Command + A” to select all bookmarks or individually select bookmarks that you want to delete. Once you have selected all the bookmarks, right-click and choose the “Delete” option.
Finally, after deleting your bookmarks, you need to empty your Trash bin to remove them permanently. When you empty your Trash bin, you can’t recover the bookmarks that you deleted. To empty your Trash bin, right-click the Trash bin and click “Empty Trash.”
In summary, deleting bookmarks on your Mac is simple and straightforward. You can delete bookmarks individually or delete them all at once. Deleting bookmarks will free up space and make it easier to manage your bookmarks. Now that you know how to delete bookmarks on Mac, you can quickly tidy up your bookmarks and make your browsing experience more efficient.
