After adding Bookmarks to video clips in PowerPoint 2013, you may want to know how you can edit and remove those Bookmarks. At this point of time, let's state some facts -- we have bad news and good news. The bad news is that PowerPoint does not let you edit the inserted Bookmarks -- for instance, you cannot change the time of the Bookmark from 25 seconds to 28 seconds. You will have to remove the Bookmark you wanted to edit, and add a new Bookmark all over again! On the other hand, removing a Bookmark is easy -- and that is the good news!
In this tutorial, we'll show how you can remove a Bookmark from a video clip in PowerPoint 2013:
- Open your presentation, and navigate to the required slide where you have already
inserted a video clip. If your video
clip has no Bookmarks added, go ahead and
add Bookmarks. The video
clip that you see in Figure 1, below has four bookmarks added (highlighted in
Figure 1: Video clip with multiple Bookmarks added
- Now, within the Player Controls bar, locate the Bookmark that you want to remove, and
click it to select. Place your cursor over the Bookmark to see the Bookmark's name and time position in the
tool tip (see Figure 2, below). A selected Bookmark is indicated by a yellow dot, as shown
highlighted in red within Figure 2.

- With your bookmark selected, locate the Bookmarks group within the
Video Tools Playback tab. Now, click the Remove Bookmark button, highlighted
in red within Figure 3.

Note: Do not press the Delete key on your keyboard -- that will delete the entire video clip from your slide!
- This will remove the Bookmark from the video clip, as shown in Figure 4. If you removed
this Bookmark by error, quickly undo the last step by pressing Ctrl+Z.

- Make sure you save your presentation.
