Delete History From Your Web Browser

As you browse the Internet, each of the items you view are noted locally by your browser to improve browsing speed as well as maintain a list of links you have already visited.

But whether it's to conserve hard disk drive space or your privacy, you may want to delete history from the browser. This is relatively simple to do, and you can find instructions for all the common browsers below.

Internet Explorer:

Click the 'Tools' menu, 'Internet Options', and select the 'Delete Files' or 'Delete' button next to the Browsing History link.

Mozilla Firefox:

Click the 'Tools' menu, then 'Options', and the 'Privacy' button. Under 'History' click the "Clear" button.


Click the 'File' menu, then 'Preferences', and 'History', and click the 'Empty now' button.

Each of these browsers also provides an option to automatically delete the history each time you close the browser window, usually under the 'Advanced' or 'Security' settings.
