    Default getting rid of google history

    how can i get rid of the entries in the pop down box on the google website that comes up when you type search strings in?

    I have tried deleting temp net files via internet options, and also deleting the contents of my windowns\cookies folder....

    Hi Neil, sounds like you are talking about the Google tool bar. Just click on the Google sign to the left of the box & choose 'clear search history' in the dropdown.

    Pam F has the right idea.

    Right-click on the search drop-down and choose 'select all'.

    Right-click again and choose 'Delete'.

    That's it. :-)

    Sorry Neil. I put you wrong.

    The suggestion I made before only affects the item in the search field, not the following list.

    Try this...
    To clear the search history, inside Internet Explorer:

    1. Click the Tools menu.
    2. Click Internet Options.
    3. On the Content tab, click AutoComplete.
    4. Click Clear Forms.

    Also, you can permanently disable this feature for all Web sites using
    the check boxes above.

    Let us know how you get on.
