I have way too many Bookmarks saved, and would like to delete many of them at one time. Much like when deleting files--I left click a file, then hold the Shift key down while I move the mouse several files away, left click again All files are now highlighted, and I can then select delete--then all those selections are deleted. I'm not able to do that while in Bookmarks.

Any help? Uncle Dewey

Try the following:

(1) Go (Menu) Bookmarks > Show all Bookmarks ( Or just press Ctrl+Shift+B ) The "Show all bookmarks" window will open.

(2) In that window you can deal with bookmarks just as you would with files in Windows Explorer.

Take care, Uncle Dewey

Hi Uncleduke,
That new "window" is called the "Library" & you can do most editing etc., in there.
