Salesforce Marketing Cloud - Edit a Data Extension

Usually our work in Salesforce Marketing Cloud (SMC) will be in Email Studio.
Salesforce Marketing Cloud main menu with Email Studio selected

In Email Studio, we can create a Data Extension, delete all records from a Data Extension, and import new data into a Data Extension; but we cannot edit, add, or delete individual records.

In Contact Builder, we can also edit, add, or delete individual records in a Data Extension.

To open Contact Builder, mouse over the Home icon to display the main menu bar.
Then mouse over Audience Builder and select Contact Builder.
