How to select a bunch of bookmarks in the bookmark menu?

  • Hey,

    I am quite serious about the question due to the large number of bookmarks I wanna delete:
    In the bookmark menu I can only select a bookmark after bookmark but either I don't know how to select a certain number of successive bookmarks or no shortcut is coded for this issue.
    If it is the former problem, please tell me how to do that. Thanks you.

  • You don't seem to be able to use the normal Windows trick of holding down CTRL and/or Shift to do multiple selection, but CTRL+A still selects them all, and then you can hold CTRL down and deselect any you don't want to delete.
    This might speed things up.

  • PS You can also hold down the left button and "lasso" the bookmark tiles.
    That's probably even better!

  • He did say "menu" ... from the speed dial you can click on the heart to get the bookmark manager that Dave is talking about - I don't think you can select multiple items in the menu.

  • Ah, the OP was talking about wanting to delete large numbers of bookmarks, so I assumed he was trying to do it in the bookmarks manager!

  • Your assumption was right. Large number is like 20-30 bookmarks out of 300. I thought that the Opera coders do live in the same world as we do, i.e. Windows-world with its usual shortcuts.
