View Full Version : Purging searches in Google
05-24-2003, 03:45 PM
Google is to me the best search engine around.
I use it a lot on my home PC.
It keeps the searches I make, when I start typing a word I get the little drop down of everything I have searched in the past starting with the same letter...
How can I purge this list...? I looked around for some options, preference, I couldn't find anything.

That's not a Google feature, that's a browser feature. Tell me which one you have and I'll tell you how to turn it off and delete entries

Ohhhh that makes sense...
I did try first to delete Internet Files etc etc from Internet Option in my control panel, but it didn't work.
I have Windows XP (home) and my browser is Internet Explorer 6.0 I believe.

Tools > Internet Options > Content tab > AutoComplete button. You can check and uncheck what to use autocomplete for or click the Clear Forms button to purge all the saved text.
If you want to delete only a few selected ones you can do so by typing the first few letters in the web form in question and clicking the one to delete in the drop-down box and then hit the Delete key.
