    Hello,

    Ive been searching and searching (possible for the wrong thing)

    But I'm trying to find a way to make a shortcut, for a command that doesn't exactly exist, so therefore create the command too ?

    Safari, Chrome, you can quickly/simply bookmark a page when browsing by pressing CMD+D

    How do i create a command to remove a bookmarked page, without having to go to the menu at the top, or bookmark manager ... and then create a shortcut for it so it too like 'ADD' can also be actioned via the keyboard.

    Many thanks if theres a way to do this,

    Stuart Rozier

    The creation of a bookmark is straight-forward; you get the page you're on; removing an existing one, no so much. You have to indicate which one you want to remove. I don't see how you're going to do that without highlighting something in your Bookmarks list.

    Bookmarks are a lot easier to deal with if you've got them (in or out of folders) on the Bookmarks Bar in Chrome (Favorites Bar in Safari).

    You'll need a scripting application for what you're seeking to do. You *may* be able to get some workable solution with Applescript, but I'll offer that you likely won't - the go-to application I use to "tell" apps and/or the System to perform commands is Keyboard Maestro, but the command structure in the relevant application(s) needs to exist before scripting them....
