Bulk Edit helps you perform actions on groups of saved items at once. These actions include tag, favorite, archive and delete.

How to Use Bulk Edit

Pocket items in bulk edit mode

  1. Click the Bulk Edit button in the top-right toolbar (pencil icon)
  2. Select the items you wish to edit by clicking on them. When selected, the item will highlight in teal. Alternatively, you can hold the Shift key to select a group of items.

Common Questions

Can I select all items in my List or Archive?

Due to technical limitations, a “select all” button is not available. To select a group of items at once, you can use the Shift key on your keyboard to select a group of items at once.

Changing your display option to view your items in the compact list view will make it even easier to see and select many items quickly. Click the profile button and select “view items as a list” to change this option.

Can I use Bulk Edit to remove Tags?

It is only possible to add tags to a group of items at once. If you would no longer like to use a particular tag, you can delete the tag from your account and it will be removed from all items.Learn about Tagging in Pocket on your Computer.
