After adding a Bookmark to an audio clip, you may want to edit or remove the Bookmark altogether. In PowerPoint you can't edit a Bookmark -- for example, you cannot change the time of your Bookmark from 30 seconds to 28 seconds. To achieve this change, you have to delete the earlier Bookmark, and then add a new Bookmark on the time position that you want.
Follow these steps to learn how to remove a selected Bookmark from an audio clip:
- Open your presentation, and navigate to the required slide where you have already
inserted an audio clip.
If your audio clip has no Bookmarks added, go ahead and
add a Bookmark.
The audio clip that you see in Figure 1, below has four bookmarks added -- notice the
white dots that represent these bookmarks within the red highlighted area.

- Now, within the Player Controls bar, click on the Bookmark that
you want to remove. Note that if you place your cursor over the Bookmark you can see the Bookmark's
name and time position in a 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, click on the Audio
Tools Playback tab and then click the Remove Bookmark button, highlighted in
red within Figure 3, below.

Note: Do not press the Delete key on your keyboard -- that will delete the entire audio clip from your slide!
- This removes the Bookmark from the audio 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 often.
