How do I remove items (individual or all) from Reading List on my iMac (OS X 10.6.8)?


I'm running OS 10.9.x right now, but I don't think it should be too different. When you open the reading list by clicking the little glasses (I think that's what it was- it may be under the same book icon as bookmarks), mouseover the item you want to delete, and you should see a tiny x in a circle appear in the top left of that item. Click to delete it.

  • Thanks AgentRF. That used to work but no more. My reading list has gotten huge & I’d finally decided to clear all the items, but that too won’t respond. – DeeEwe Jun 17 '14 at 23:39
  • So your question was more along the lines of mass-deletion, not one-by-one? – agentroadkill Jun 18 '14 at 11:59

Hold "control" down as you click on reading list item. In the menu that appears choose "delete". You can delete more than one item using "shift" or "command" keys.


hold control key, click on item, select remove. that works now after update
