To clear your entire browsing history:

  1. Open Chrome on your computer.
  2. Click on the three dots in the top right corner of the window. This is the "More" menu.
  3. Hover over "History" and then click on "History" again.
  4. On the left-hand side of the window, click on "Clear browsing data."
  5. A window will pop up that lets you choose how much history you want to delete. You can choose from "All time," "Last hour," "Last 24 hours," "Last 7 days," or "Last 4 weeks."
  6. Make sure the box next to "Browsing history" is checked. You can also choose to delete other data, such as cookies and cached images and files, by checking the boxes next to those options.
  7. Click on "Clear data" and your browsing history will be deleted.

To delete specific items from your history:

  1. Follow steps 1-3 from the instructions above on how to clear your entire browsing history.
  2. Instead of clicking on "Clear browsing data," you will see a list of all the websites you have visited recently.
  3. Check the box next to each item that you want to delete.
  4. Click on the "Delete" button at the top right of the window and the selected items will be deleted from your history.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind:

  • Clearing your browsing history will not delete your Google search history. You will need to delete that separately from your Google account settings.
  • Clearing your cookies may cause some websites to forget your preferences, such as your login information.
