Now that you know how you can add Bookmarks to video clips in PowerPoint 2010, you may want to know how you can edit and remove those Bookmarks. At this point in time, 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!

What’s a Bookmark for a Video?

A Bookmark for a video clip is a saved time position within the Player Control bar of the clip.

In this tutorial, we'll show how you can remove a Bookmark from a video clip in PowerPoint 2010 for Windows:

  1. 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 has four bookmarks added. These are visible within the Player Controls bar, highlighted in red within Figure 1, below.
  2. Video clip with multiple Bookmarks added

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

  7. Think Before You Delete!

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