Show and Delete Accepted Cookies
SUMMARY: Display cookies accepted by the Safari for Windows web browser, and delete individual cookies as desired.
By default, Safari for Windows accepts cookies from websites that you visit. If you'd like to see which cookies are currently on your system, giving you an option to remove some or all of them, do the following:
1. Press the general Safari settings menu button near the top-right of the browser (it looks like a gear).
2. Select "Preferences" from the pop-up menu.
Or, press Ctrl + , to open the Preferences window.
3. The "Preferences" window appears. Select "Security".
4. Click the "Show Cookies" button.
5. A dialog box appears where you can view each cookie. From here:
* Type in text into the search box and press the magnifying glass to search for a cookie. Note that while the cookie's website, name, and path are searched, the "Contents" field is not searched.
* Select a cookie (or multiple cookies) and press the "Remove" button to remove it / them.
As of version 4.0, this feature worked, but after removing a cookie on a test Windows XP machine, the display did not refresh. Close out of the cookie viewing dialog box then re-enter it to confirm your cookies were deleted.
* Click the "Remove All" button to remove all cookies.
* When done, click the "Done" button.
6. Click the "X" at the top-right of the "Preferences" window to close it.
Return to the Safari for Windows page.
