Figma is a highly effective design software that enables you to create interactive designs. Through the use of Prototype Links, you can connect various frames in order to simulate user flows. However, there may be times when you would like to remove these links, whether it be for decluttering or starting over. In this guide, I will walk you through the easy steps of removing all prototype links in Figma.

Locate the Prototyping Links

To begin with, you need to locate all the prototyping links. To do so, you need to switch to Prototype Mode. You can do this by clicking on the Prototype tab at the top of the properties panel on the right.
Once there, you will see different nodes (small circular icons) on your frames, and lines connecting them, these are your prototype links.

How to Remove a Single Prototype Link

Before we get into how to remove all links, let’s first understand how to remove a single link.

Select the node where your link starts. This will highlight the link line. Then, simply press Delete or Backspace on your keyboard to remove the link.

Removing All Prototype Links

Now that we understand how to remove a single link, let’s take a look at how to remove all links from your Figma design.

Essentially, you need to select all frames in your prototype and delete the links from each one. There isn’t a direct one-click way to do this, but with a combination of a couple of steps, you can achieve this.

1. Press `Ctrl+A` (or `Cmd+A` on macOS) to select all elements on your canvas.

2. Once all elements are selected, go to the Prototype tab. Point your mouse on each of the nodes – they will turn blue when you hover them – and hit `Delete` or `Backspace` on your keyboard.

3. Repeat the second step until all the nodes (and thus the links) are deleted.

And there you have it! All prototype links are now removed from your Figma file.


Removing prototype links from your Figma design can simplify your design or help you start afresh. While there isn’t a direct way of removing all links at once, our step by step guide should help make the process quick and easy.

Happy designing!
