Common Questions

Can I select all items in my Saves 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.
