Removing a Bookmark in Google Chrome

 

Bookmarks are handled differently than your history. When you delete the history from the Google Chrome browser, you are removing everything that Chrome has saved about your browsing history. However, a bookmark that you create is something that has been voluntarily saved and will not be deleted when you clear your history. Therefore, the process of deleting Google Chrome bookmarks is a little different.

 

Step 1: Launch the Google Chrome browser.

Step 2: Click the wrench icon at the top-right corner of the window, click Bookmarks, then click Bookmark Manager.
