The main window of ChromeCookiesView displays the list of all cookies stored in your Google Chrome Web browser. You can select one or more chookie entries, and then use the 'Delete Selected Cookies' (Ctrl+Del) to delete them.
If you want to view the cookies stored in another cookies file, go to 'Advanced Options' window (F9) and choose the desired cookies file.

Command-Line Options

/DeleteCookies <Host> {Cookie Name} Deletes cookies from command-line. If you specify only the host name, all cookies of this host name will be deleted. If you also specify the cookie name, only this specific cookie will be deleted.

ChromeCookiesView.exe /DeleteCookies ""
ChromeCookiesView.exe /DeleteCookies "" "session-token"

ChromeCookiesView.exe /CookiesFile "c:\temp\Chrome\cookies"

/sort <column> This command-line option can be used with other save options for sorting by the desired column. If you don't specify this option, the list is sorted according to the last sort that you made from the user interface. The <column> parameter can specify the column index (0 for the first column, 1 for the second column, and so on) or the name of the column, like "Host Name" and "Path". You can specify the '~' prefix character (e.g: "~Secure") if you want to sort in descending order. You can put multiple /sort in the command-line if you want to sort by multiple columns.

ChromeCookiesView.exe /shtml "f:\temp\cookies.html" /sort 2 /sort ~1
ChromeCookiesView.exe /shtml "f:\temp\cookies.html" /sort "Host Name" /sort "Path"

/nosort When you specify this command-line option, the list will be saved without any sorting.
