Remove Bookmarks from Audio Clips in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Learn to remove Bookmarks from audio clips in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows.


Product/Version: Microsoft PowerPoint 2016

OS: Microsoft Windows 7 and higher

Once you add Bookmarks to an audio clip, you may want to edit or remove one or more Bookmarks 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.

Note: A Bookmark for an audio clip is a saved time position within the Player Control bar (highlighted in red within Figure 1, below) of the clip.

Follow these steps to learn how to remove a selected Bookmark from an audio clip in PowerPoint 2016:

  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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!
  4. This removes the Bookmark from the audio clip, as shown in Figure 4. If you removed any Bookmark by error, quickly undo the last action by pressing Ctrl+Z.

Pictures in Presentations

Is a picture is worth a thousand words? You probably have heard this adage so often that we decided not to repeat this phrase throughout this book! Now here’s some more info: the human brain uses a larger part of its area to store visual information rather than textual content. And that’s possibly because a picture describes so much more than text.
