- Since the up gradation of Microsoft Edge during the end of 2015 Microsoft started storing the bookmarks in its database, so, there is no way to delete entire bookmarks at once except deleting the database file. However, it is not recommended to delete your database file since it may cause a problem in synchronization. Having said that, you can delete entire bookmarks from Microsoft Edge with the help of third party application like “Edge manage”.
If you don’t want to use third party application to do the job you have no alternative, then to delete bookmarks individually. If you intend to do so, I would personally recommend you to use the delete button on your keyboard. It will be far more convenient than clicking your right mouse button every time. Just go to the end of your bookmarks list and keep pressing the delete button until you are done deleting the entire bookmarks on your browser. This is the easiest way to delete your entire bookmarks in no time.
