#53350 closed feature request (duplicate)

User experience deleting many menu items

for menus with lots of items (like after importing theme demo content) it takes a lot of time deleting them by opening the dropdown, finding the delete button and click on it.

why cant we delete menu items by focusing and pressing DEL key on the keyboard? or an "trash" area to drag and drop menu items to delete them.

a faster delete mechanism would make the user experience of wordpress 1% better ;)

thank you!

Hi @sentinel777 and welcome to WordPress Trac,

A bulk deletion feature was added in WP Core few days ago :)
See ticket #21603 for more info. It will be introduced by WP 5.8.

You can test the feature on a test site using WP Beta Tester plugin.
