How To Delete Safari Bookmarks

While it is easy to add Safari bookmarks, it isn't obvious how to delete them since the sidebar doesn't allow you to select a bookmark for deletion. However, you can use the context menu to delete a bookmark from the sidebar. You can also use Edit Bookmarks mode to select and delete a single or multiple bookmarks easily.

    Love your content. I watch every episode, and have been doing so for years, but I don’t know many people that use the Control + Left Click to bring up the contextual menu. Right clicking on the mouse is the standard operating procedure for more people than to Control Click (I assume).

    Mark: Consider that most Mac users don’t use a mouse. For a decade now, MacBooks have outsold desktop Macs. And even many desktop Mac users go for the trackpad, not the mouse. You can still two-finger-click with a trackpad, but a lot of people disable that or switch to an alternative. Saying “control click” is the only sure-fire way to bring up the context menu no matter which input device you are using, and how you have your preferences set.

    You can also drag out of the Bookmarks sidebar to delete.

    I have accidentally dragged a favorite bookmark file from the favorites bookmark bar and heard it go poof and lost the whole file of bookmarks. Nightmare! when I have a good list. Is there anyway to find and restore these?

    Susan: Like with a lot of things, you can undo it with Edit, Undo (Command+z). But if you have already done many other things in Safari, then you may not be able to anymore.

    I just do the same thing I do for many other items to delete within a list, I just right click on the item to delete and select delete.
