Alternatively, you can also access the bookmarks menu by using a keyboard shortcut. Press “Ctrl + Shift + O” simultaneously and it will directly open the Bookmark Manager.
The Bookmark Manager provides an overview of all your bookmarks in a user-friendly interface. From here, you can organize, edit, and delete your bookmarks with ease.

In the Bookmark Manager tab, you will see a list of folders on the left-hand side, followed by a list of your bookmarks on the right-hand side. The folders help you categorize and organize your bookmarks effectively.
Scroll through the list of bookmarks to find the one you wish to delete. If you have a considerable number of bookmarks, you can also use the search bar at the top right corner of the Bookmark Manager. Simply type in a keyword related to the bookmark, and the search feature will filter the list accordingly.
Once you have located the bookmark you want to delete, you are ready to move on to the next step. Make sure you have selected the correct bookmark before proceeding, as the deletion process cannot be undone. Double-check the title and URL to ensure accuracy.

Step 4: Right-click on the bookmark
After locating the bookmark you want to delete, it’s time to initiate the deletion process. To do this, you will need to right-click on the bookmark. Right-clicking on the bookmark will open a context menu with various options, including the option to delete the bookmark.
To right-click on a Chromebook, press and hold the “Alt” key on your keyboard while tapping the touchpad with one finger. This will simulate a right-click and open the context menu.
Alternatively, if you are using a mouse with your Chromebook, simply right-click on the bookmark by pressing the right button.
Upon right-clicking on the bookmark, a context menu will pop up on the screen. This menu contains several options for managing the bookmark, such as opening it in a new tab, editing the bookmark details, and deleting the bookmark.
Take a moment to ensure that you have right-clicked on the correct bookmark. Check the title and URL in the context menu to verify its accuracy.
Now that you have successfully right-clicked on the bookmark and opened the context menu, it’s time to proceed to the next step and select the “Delete” option to remove the bookmark from your Chromebook.

After right-clicking on the bookmark, a context menu will appear on your Chromebook screen. In this context menu, you will find several options for managing the bookmark. To delete the bookmark, you need to select the “Delete” option.
Using the touchpad or mouse, move the cursor down the context menu until you reach the “Delete” option. Once the “Delete” option is highlighted, click it to proceed with deleting the bookmark.
After selecting the “Delete” option, a confirmation prompt may appear on the screen asking you to confirm the deletion. This is a safety measure to prevent accidental deletions. Take a moment to review the prompt and ensure that you are deleting the correct bookmark.
If you are sure you want to delete the bookmark, click the “Delete” or “OK” button in the confirmation prompt. This will initiate the deletion process, and the bookmark will be removed from your Chromebook.

Once you have clicked the “Delete” or “OK” button in the confirmation prompt, the bookmark will be immediately removed from the Bookmark Manager. The page will refresh, and you will notice that the bookmark is no longer visible in the list.
It is good practice to visually confirm the deletion by scrolling through the list of bookmarks in the Bookmark Manager. Verify that the bookmark you deleted is no longer present in the list.
In addition to visually confirming the deletion, you can also test if the bookmark is truly deleted by attempting to access it. If you try to open the deleted bookmark, you should receive an error message indicating that the page could not be found.
By confirming the deletion, you ensure that the unwanted bookmark is completely removed from your Chromebook. This step helps declutter your bookmarks list and ensures that you have an accurate and up-to-date collection of bookmarks.
