Removing a Bookmark on Mac

Bookmarks are a great way to save your favorite websites and easily access them later. However, there might be times when you want to remove a bookmark from your Mac. Whether you no longer visit the website or simply want to declutter your bookmark list, removing a bookmark is a quick and easy process.

Step 1: Open Safari

If you’re using Safari as your default browser on your Mac, open it by clicking on the Safari icon in your Dock or by searching for “Safari” in Spotlight.

Step 2: Access your Bookmarks

To access your bookmarks, click on the “Bookmarks” menu at the top of the screen. A dropdown menu will appear with various options.

Option 1: Sidebar

If you have the sidebar enabled, you can simply click on the sidebar icon located in the toolbar. The sidebar will slide out from the left side of the window, displaying all your bookmarks.

Option 2: Bookmarks Menu

If you prefer using the Bookmarks menu, hover over it and another dropdown menu will appear. From here, select “Show All Bookmarks.” This will open a new window containing all of your bookmarks.

Step 3: Locate the Bookmark

Once you have accessed your bookmarks, navigate through the folders or lists until you find the bookmark that you want to remove. Click on it to select it.

Step 4: Remove the Bookmark

To remove the selected bookmark, either right-click on it and choose “Delete” from the context menu or use the keyboard shortcut “Command + Delete” while having it selected. A confirmation prompt may appear asking if you are sure about deleting the bookmark. Click “Delete” to confirm.

Alternatively, you can also drag and drop the bookmark to the Trash icon located in your Dock. This will instantly remove the bookmark without any confirmation prompt.

Step 5: Confirm Removal

After deleting the bookmark, it is a good practice to confirm its removal. To do this, go back to your browser window and try accessing the bookmarked page. If it no longer appears in your bookmarks list or sidebar, you have successfully removed the bookmark.


Removing a bookmark on Mac is a simple process that can help you keep your bookmarks organized and up-to-date. Whether you’re decluttering your bookmarks or no longer visit a particular website, following these steps will allow you to easily remove unwanted bookmarks from Safari on your Mac.

Remember, keeping your bookmarks tidy can help improve your browsing experience and make it easier for you to find those important websites when you need them. So take a few minutes every now and then to remove any unnecessary bookmarks and keep your browser organized.
