How can I delete specific cookies from Google Chrome?
I have cookies from a website that recently got updated, and I need to clean up the existing cookies, but I don't want to delete any other cookies that I have in the browser.

Here's a command-line solution for deleting specific cookies from Chrome.
Cookies are stored in an sqlite database file:
You can delete all cookies belonging to a site by running an SQL
DELETE command on this file:
Linux / Mac
sqlite3 cookiefile 'DELETE FROM cookies WHERE host_key LIKE "%domain%";'
sqlite3 cookiefile "DELETE FROM cookies WHERE host_key LIKE '%domain%';"
You can download the sqlite commandline client from here: https://sqlite.org/download.html
The wrench menu is gone now. In Sept 2014, the answer to the question of how to delete specific cookies in the Chrome Browser is:
A shorter alternative to arrive at the same place as the above steps is to type the chrome URL directly into the address bar:
chrome://settings/content/cookies, which can also be bookmarked for more convienient reuse, before proceeding onto the final steps:
Google sure has made this difficult. The headings that lead you here are non-intuitive, and it's way to buried, and by changing the location of this function in each version of Chrome, there are all kinds of out-dated answers on the web.
I use Cookie Monster for managing cookies for all my browsers, not just Chrome.
This works on my system:
...presenting a list of per-site cookies with a search/filter text field in the top-right corner of the page, for my current version/context/date:
Google Chrome: 111.0.5563.64 (Official Build) (arm64) OS: macOS Version 12.6.3 (Build 21G419) date: 2023-03-15
Since it appears Google Chrome is changing its user interaction every so often (a few of the above answers did not work for me, including the most-up-voted answer), this might not work on other OSes or in future versions, but who knows.
Consider using Cookie Editor extension.
They are free. ChromeCookieView is very functional. CookieSpy shows cookies for not only for Chrome but and other browsers as well.
