How to Delete All Bookmarks on Microsoft Edge

1. Ctrl+Shift+O on Window to open Favorites

You can find Favorites bar and other favorites and Mobile favorites¬†“Command+Shift+B” on macOS.

 

2. Delete folder and each favorite

When deleting the bookmarks in the Favorites bar, you can delete a folder and all its contents by right-clicking on the folder and selecting “Delete.” Similarly, you can delete a single favorite by right-clicking on it and selecting “Delete.”

 

3. But you want to delete all Bookmarks

You have to go below

C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Edge\User Data\Default\

Bookmarks => This is Edge’s bookmark file.

When deleting the “Bookmarks” file at “C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Edge\User Data\Default\Bookmarks,” it’s important to first disable syncing of favorites in Edge’s Settings > Profiles > Favorites. This will prevent Edge from recreating the bookmark file from a previously backed-up version. Additionally, the backup file is named “Bookmarks.bak.”

If the AppData folder is not visible, check the hidden file option in the folder view option of Windows to make it visible. If you want to show the file extension, check the file extension to make it visible.
