Introduction

AM-DeadLink provides an easy way to check various sources for dead links or redirections.

AM-DeadLink will detect Browser bookmarks (and Browsers Applications) automatically, so no configuration should be required to check Browser bookmarks for dead links.

How to check for dead links
  1. Select Source
    Select the source from the dropdown box (eg. Google Chrome)
  2. Check list
    Click the check button and wait until the check run has finished
  3. Sort list
    Click the Sort button to move pages with errors to the top of the list (pages with errors are displayed in red and bold)
How to delete bookmarks from your Browser
  1. Open bookmark
    Open a bookmark via double click in your Browser and verify if it is no longer available.
  2. Edit/Delete
    If a page is no longer available, then click "Edit/Delete" to open the selected bookmark in the bookmark manager of your browser. Right click the found result to edit or remove the bookmark.
Dependent on the selected source, double clicking a bookmark will open the URL in the related browser window. That means, Chrome bookmarks will automatically open in Chrome, Edge bookmarks will open automatically in Edge, etc.

Why bookmarks cannot be deleted directly in AM-DeadLink

Browser bookmarks should only be deleted within the browser user interface, not via external tools. Changing bookmark databases outside of the browser will be in conflict with various functions and will also produce side effects when synchronizing bookmarks between devices.

AM-DeadLink supports command line parameters to check HTML files. These command line parameters can be used if you want to start AM-DeadLink from a HTML editor to check links.

Usage:

deadlink.exe /file="..." /check
