How to Clear Browsing History on Windows 10

Microsoft Edge

Microsoft Edge is the newer, faster, cooler replacement for Internet Explorer – or at least that’s how Microsoft wants us to view it. It comes pre-installed on PCs running Windows 10 and is the best-integrated with other Microsoft products such as Bing.

To delete your browsing history on Edge, follow these steps:

Step 1: Open Microsoft Edge. Then, select the Hub icon in the top-right. It resembles a shooting star.

Step 2: Select History on the left side, then click Clear History on the top.

Step 3: Select which forms of browsing data you wish to clear, such as Browsing History, Download History, Form Data etc. Then, click Clear. Note: If you want Microsoft Edge to clear your browsing history every time you leave the application, press the slider below “Always clear this when I close the browser.” This can be helpful if Windows 10 is slow and you visit many websites during each session.

Mozilla Firefox

The procedure for deleting browsing history in Mozilla Firefox is similar to Microsoft Edge.

Step 1: Open Firefox. Click the icon on the top-right which resembles a stack of books.

Step 2: Select History.

Step 3: Click Clear Recent History.

Step 4: Select the time range and type of data you wish to clear. Then click Clear Now.

Google Chrome

Google Chrome is by far the most popular web browser on Windows 10 PCs. The process to delete browsing data is very straightforward, as outlined below.

Step 1: Open the Google Chrome browser. Click the icon with the three vertical dots in the upper-right corner. Select History. Then select History again. Alternatively, once you open Google Chrome, select Ctrl + H.

Step 2: Once you do that, the following Window will appear. Click Clear Browsing Data.

Step 3: Once the pop-up appears, click Clear Data. You can also use Advanced options to select the time range and types of data to be cleared. Once you hit Clear Data, everything you selected will be cleared.
