Delete Search History?

By jakethesnake

  1. Hey. I very, very frequently use Google, MSN & Yahoo Search. When I am searching for something, it lists all of the thing that I have searched for before. (IE: If I click on the search box, it brings down a list of everything that I have seached for before.) It really starts to bug me. Does anyone know how to get rid of it?

    Quite simple.
    In IE, click on Tools, select Internet Options. The following screen has a button 'Clear History'. Click on it and confirm. You could set the Days to keep lower, e.g. to 3, 2 or 1, up to you.

    How can I delete all the image history from Yahoo and Google?

    Hello!
    I don't want to see all the the image search I've done before when I try to look for something new. I use Google and Yahoo image search frequently for my university research work. How can I delete the image search history, let's start with Yahoo.

    You turn off Auto-Complete via browser options, and it does not differ from yahoo to Google.

    For Firefox, go to Tools>Options>Privacy>Saved Forms and uncheck the box

    For IE, go to Tools>Internet Options>Content>Auto Complete and adjust the settings accordingly.
