Clear Your Website Browsing History

SUMMARY: For privacy, temporarily clear your history list of websites visited with Internet Explorer 7.

By default, Internet Explorer 7 keeps tracks of the most-recent websites you have visited through a website history function.

From time to time, for privacy or for other reasons you may wish to clear the items listed in the history. To do so:

1. Click on the "Tools" menu, selecting "Delete Browsing History".

2. When the "Delete Browsing History" dialog box appear, click "Delete history".

3. Confirm your decision by clicking "OK" on the dialog box that follows.

4. Click "OK" to close the "Delete Browsing History" dialog box.


Would you rather partially disable your website browsing history for privacy?
