  1. Easily answered, I'm sure

    This question referers to places like Google, Yahoo, etc. (even sites that I have a user name, etc.) - Is there any way I can erase all of the items that show up??

    For example, if I were going to search "animals"; and I type in the a, anything I searched for that started with a comes up - could be apple, athlete, argentina, etc.

    There's gotta be a way I can clear this out, no? The main reason for this is that my roommates have been logging onto a site under my name, then messing with others, just dumb stuff like that. I really don't care, but, the only reason they can log on is because my name automatically pops up.

    You can also selectively delete items by hovering over the item you'd like to delete in the list and pressing the "Delete" key.
