How to Clear Browsing History in Microsoft Edge Browser?

Though Microsoft’s pushing users to try out its Edge browser seems disturbing, it’s worth trying for. The Edge browser has some interesting features, most like Chrome, to be addicted to.

Steps to Delete Microsoft Edge Browser History?

Deleting the browser history/data in the Edge browser is easy too, even though it hid the option deep in settings, unlike Google’s Chrome. While it requires users to navigate deeply into settings, you’ll be amazed by the flexibility it offers while doing so. So here’s it;

  1. Open the Edge browser and Click on the three-dots menu at the top right corner.
  2. Click on Privacy, Search, and services.
  3. That’s it. You can see the Clear browsing data option in the right-side panel when you scroll down.

When you click on it, a window pops up asking you to choose what type of data to be cleared exactly.

You can choose particular items like just the browsing history, cookies, site data, cached images and files, autofill form data, passwords or site permissions. If you want all of them to be gone, just tick all the checkboxes and continue. You can also clear items in a specific duration too.

While this needs to be done manually, you can try browsing in the InPrivate or Incognito mode to not let the browser save any of your browsing data. While this can be helpful in giving more privacy, you may miss certain features like autofill forms and quick access to regular websites in general browsing.
