Bulk Delete Chrome Bookmarks

So you're off to a brand new school year and everything is going well until your kids log into their Chromebook for the first time. You ask them to go to a specific site and they can't figure out how to get there because they go to their bookmarks bar and there are hundreds of bookmarked pages. The feeling of seeing 12 Starfall icons always causes my heart to pump. Don't panic, there's an easy way to fix this. You can easily clean off all of those past years’ bookmarks in a quick and easy way. Then you can build up this year's important sites to bookmark. 

Delete Old Bookmarks:

  1. Have your students open Chrome.

  2. Click on the 3 dots in the top right corner and select “Bookmarks”, then “Bookmark Manager”.

  1. On the left make sure you are in “Bookmarks Bar”.

  1. Click on one of the shown bookmarks (one click). Use the keyboard shortcut of Control+A. (All the links will get selected)

  1. Tap “Delete” or “Backspace” on your keyboard, or click “Delete” on the right side of the screen.

  1. Now you can build the bookmarks you want for your class!
