Thread: tip: delete all bookmarks at once

    Default tip: delete all bookmarks at once
    I had attempted to do the safari bookmark sync via iTunes and I ended up losing a bunch of iphone bookmarks, but I also got a couple of bonus bookmark folders that I could not delete... well more than one way to skin a cat.

    If you are suffering from the same problem, or just want to clean house and remove all your bookmarks at once here a simple way. Load up your favorite iphoneinterface and grab your Bookmarks.plist file:
    cd /private/var/root/Library/Safari/
    getfile Bookmarks.plist
    Make a copy of this file for backup purposes just encase you decide you didn't really want to delete your bookmarks.

    I'm a PC user so I didn't have the luxury of being able to edit this file in its nice pretty xml format, if you are on a Mac you should be able to selectively edit this file as you wish.

    I just opened the file in my text editor, did a select-all, delete, save.

    Upload the file back to your iphone, and your safari bookmarks have a fresh start (and those pesky ones that didnít let you delete them are gone!).
