How to Delete All Chrome Bookmarks?

Since its inception on 2nd September 2008, Google Chrome made its way to the top beating its competitors Firefox and Explorer. As of 2020, Chrome has 2.65 billion users. Not surprisingly, its features are comfortable in many ways. One of the user-friendly features on Chrome is Bookmarking.

What is a Bookmark on Chrome?

A bookmark on Chrome is a shortcut to your favorite web page. Any page that you like to read or would want to revisit in the future, you can save as a bookmark. At the end of the page URL, you find a Star mark. Just click, it and voila, you have just bookmarked the corresponding web page.

How many bookmarks can you make on Chrome?

Theoretically, there is no limit on the number of bookmarks you can make on Chrome. This is a comfortable feature to save our favorite pages and revisit them later. However, beyond a certain limit, the bookmarks tend to be messy. We feel like deleting them all and start from scratch.
