Once you add Bookmark(s) 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 position 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.

What is a Bookmark?

A Bookmark for an audio clip is a saved time position within the Player Control bar, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 1, below.

Follow these steps to remove a selected Bookmark from an audio clip in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows:

  1. 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.

  3. 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, as shown in Figure 2, below. A selected Bookmark is indicated by a yellow dot, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 2.

  7. Delete the Bookmark, Not the Audio Clip

  8. Do not press the Delete key on your keyboard. That will delete the entire audio clip from your slide!
  9. Doing so removes the Bookmark from the audio clip, as shown in Figure 4, below. If you removed this Bookmark by error, quickly undo the last step by pressing Ctrl + Z.
